I have updated my contact information so that it is now pointing at my Gmail account. For what it's worth, Gmail is utterly better than Hotmail. Once it goes public, I'd certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a good freemail account.
This is not a diary. It is a collection of thoughts, essays, stories, etc on those topics that are of interest to me. Being a blog, it goes without saying that it is utterly self-indulgent.
