    Are you going to post some details about this event for those of us who are not on Facebook?

    It's not an event in real time and space, Sally. It's an event on your cell phone!

    Wherever there are (WAP-enabled) cellphones, there it will be! First chapters are sent on 7 July, and you'll receive one a day for 28 days. (They will be archived for those who join late, but it's so much more fun to be there from the get-go.)

    Does that "wherever" span the globe, or is it still just SA?

    Ah, Richard, you miss so many wonderful things up there in the NL.

    Ah, Mr. Simm, you only come out of hiding to taunt me with your irony.

    Perhaps we should arrange a house swap during the next CTBF, so that you can experience the full extent of my suffering...
