Eric is back from one of his pseudo-yearly trips to California, where he got a lot of things done and had some very interesting meetings with a number of people. (No, they weren’t venture capitalists.) Many of these people were very generous with the freebies, so Eric’s closet now has a few more T-shirts (as if he needed them) and his bookshelf is a little bit richer. He also stopped by Ragged Point again, and the food there is as good as ever. All hail Roger!
