Underway in the USA

16 Apr

As you may have noticed, things have been quiet around here for a short time now. To respond to a few queries I’ve received (it’s so nice to know you care): yes, the blog will continue. However, it will be a few more weeks before that happens I’m afraid. My wife and I are taking my German in-laws on a road trip around the Southwest of the United States. (I’m writing this from our first stop after our starting point of Dallas, New Orleans.) We’ll be back home in Norway on the first of May, but it wil likely be a week or ten days after that before I can get caught up on other work and back to the blog. But bear with me please, because then we’ll be getting to Ultima III and the birth of Origin Systems, the continuing adventures of the text adventure in Britain, and at least one topic that may surprise you.

For now I’ll be wandering around my home country translating a lot of German and marveling at how unbelievably cheap everything is here. Catch you in a few weeks!

(Update: Thanks for all your good wishes. We had a great trip. I’m back home in Oslo again now. Give me a week or so to get things settled, and then we should be rolling again around here.)

    If you end up anywhere near SF, let me know and I’ll buy you a beer and load you up with some more Dennis Wheatleys…

    New Orleans, hmmmm. Isn’t that where the Easy Rider gang dropped acid, in St. Louis Cemetery #1, on their trip across America?

      Sorry, Jimmy, didn’t mean to be tasteless – that was for the film buff in you. I trust you and your fellow travelers to stick with NOLA’s beignets and coffee, which can’t be beat.
