By the time you see this, Tonya and I will have moved into our new house in Issaquah, Washington. We simply needed more space to escape the gravitational pull of our computers and explore the most appropriate ways to integrate technology into life. TidBITS will be moving as well, so if you need its new snail mail address for items that can't travel via the Internet, send email to <ace@tidbits.com>. We think we have the transition figured out in terms of where to site our Apple Internet Server, although we'll personally be limited to modem connections to the Internet until U.S. West installs our ISDN line. Needless to say, please be gentle with email and don't send large attachments without asking first. Please also try to bear with us through any periods of server flakiness during the move. [ACE]
