Hey dude! Long time no see... ;-)

You will be relieved to know that the traffic is not what it used to
be--still alive, and good things being said, but less OT posting (and
hardly a word about poutine in months [though I trolled for it the
other day])

interesting tidbits.

I haven't tried BlueTooth yet, but from everything I've read on the
list, I get the impression that it works better than wifi... go
figure. :-) Maybe it's because it avoids the NIE stack, using the
normal comms, or something. But I'm guessing you will be pleasantly
surprised. Someday, I swear I will try BT myself...
