I am devoting today, Tuesday, June 2, almost entirely to the task of gathering my stuff back into piles and other related tasks such as doing a little laundry, all this in preparation for departure early tomorrow morning.
However, I should have myself together by this evening. I will therefore be taking calls commencing at 7:00 p.m. Central Daylight Time until approximately 8:00 p.m. Central Daylight Time. If you wish to call me and chat for a few minutes, it would be a very simple thing to do.
Simply scroll down to the bottom of this page. Do you see that small picture of me wherein I look like a deer in the headlights? Do you see the button that says “Call Me?” Just mash that button. You will be asked to type in your name. That is all, and that is only so that I can see who the hell is calling. When you mash the next button, we should connect if I answer the telephone and I will.
You do not need any special software installed on your computer. You do not need a camera. If you do not wish to be seen, then do not turn on the camera you have. All you need is a microphone and speakers or headset of some sort attached or built in to your computer so that you can talk and hear. If this is not the case then this software has been seriously misrepresented to me, and somebody will pay. It may only be an innocent bystander, but somebody will pay.
I am going to open the telephone back up and take calls at 2:00 a.m. Wednesday, June 3, for about an hour. This is primarily for the benefit of the second shift guys, Spike and Scott and Mike, should they wish to call. You gents should crank up a laptop at Xavier's and telephone me from there. Also, the folks in Europe are more than welcome to join in then, too, or earlier for that matter.
I look forward to talking with you. Now it is back to work for me.
