Away. Thanks. etc.

Okay, that’s it. I’m going to be mostly incommunicado here until the beginning of next year. I may not be able to stop myself from posting a couple of times, but the next ten days is going to be mostly spent offline.

Thanks all for a fun 2006 here. See you in 2007 when I’ll revisit my predictions for 2006, make some new ones for 2007, plus launch a couple of other services here.

Happy holidays.


  1. Thanks for all the inspired posting Paul. Enjoy your break.

  2. Merry Christmas, Paul. Or should I say:
    Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress,
    non-addictive, gender neutral, celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all together with a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but not with due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make Great Britain great not to imply that Great Britain is necessarily greater than any other country and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical ability, religious faith or otherwise or sexual orientation of the wishee.
    By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for her/himself (or other sexual denomination) or others, and is void where prohibited by law and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher.
    This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of not more than one year, on the calendar of the wishee’s choice, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and the warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.
