August Vacation

Just a quick note to say that I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. Been busy finishing a bunch of projects before I start work on a new book. And now I'm on a two week vacation, driving through Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia. Here's a picture of me visiting the Otis Redding "sitting on the dock of the bay" statue in Macon, Georgia.

You ever reported on "gravity hills"? These are places where it looks like you're going down hill, but you're really going up hill. Or the other way around. Not a hoax, but the stories that go with them are a little hoaxy. And they do have an element of spookiness to them. There's one near Laurinburg NC, just a few minutes off 74, that makes a fun vacation diversion.

I told you all the robot was okay! All we needed to do was reboot the CMOS.

If you squint real hard at that pic of Otis you can make out this pale ghostly figure to the right.

(Allright, that's pretty lame sick , I was put off by the advert in the prior comment for swivel chairs!?)

Have a great vacation. If you are swinging through Durham I'll buy you a drink.

I always knew Alex was a Forex robot on autopilot but finally I have my proof. Thanks Parit!

hi alex,

would you mind if I use some of your hoaxes for our school paper? I plan to use it for our brain teaser section and will be titled "fact or hoax- how clever are you?"

many of my schoolmates don't know what is a hoax..
