Happy New Year to all!

I had hoped to spend oodles and oodles of time in front of the Mac during the recent holiday season: After all, I had 12 days without having to go into the office. Most of that Mac time was to be spent with either Danny Goodman's book or Archipelago. However, nothing ever happens as planned.

After a visit with our financial advisor - who informed us that if we didn't do something drastic soon, we would be killed on taxes - we jumped into the Silicon Valley real estate market (not an area for the faint of heart). Christmas vacation was spent looking at homes, signing papers, and (mostly) giving away money. But, as a result we will soon own a home - the closing date is February 28.

So, John, if the next volume of Archipelago comes out before the end of February, send it to the same address. If it comes out after March 3 (the day we sould be moved in) send it to:

4962 Paseo Tranquillo
San Jose, CA 95118

I'll give you a call when we settle in the new place.

In the midst of all this, I hope that I was able to make a worthwhile contribution to this volume of Archipelago.
