If you've written me in the last 3 days, I no longer have your e-mail. I hadn't been downloading any mail because of the virus, but the numbers of attachments had been dropping, and I came home tonight from being out most of the day and started to DL, then interrupted the program as I realized I should do one last check of my mail online, but apparently my fucking mail program kept running in the background in some form or fashion because when I opened it up again, there were a hundred completely blank messages in my inbox, a handful of survivors, and nothing left on the server.

I'd glanced at most of it, headers if nothing else, so I know there should be only a handful of personal messages; the rest was just from mailing lists, or copies of LJ comments that I've already read.

Anyway. Please resend if you're so inclined.

Edited to add: I found I have a partial message from someone named Marianne; the return address is missing now, and there's no IP address, nothing but a few lines of text and some truncated HTML gibberish. I'm not sure that this is from anyone who knows me through LJ, but maybe someone here knows someone by that name who might have sent e-mail...? This is so....ARGHHHHH.

Random drive-by musing ... for ages now whenever I've seen your usage of "eliade" it's put me into mind of Mircea Eliade. (By 'ages now' I mean before you got an LJ, when all you had going was the website and I came across your Stargate SG-1 stories and went *splat*.)

I blame religion classes for it. Mircea Eliade indeed. Interesting sort of bloke, for all that his writing spun my head around -- in a different sort of way to your own, that is. Yours is more of a 'woo'. His is more of a 'what the hell?'

Sorry to hear about your puter troubles. Seems to be this thing going 'round.

::hands you cup of tea while frowning at computer::

I've been wanting to write to tell you how much I like the poems you've posted every day. They do good things with words and ideas, and they do good things with my mind when I read them. Thanks for this.
