Well, it's a matter of principle too (yeah, I know I have strange
principles :) ).

Yeah, about one minute for each e-mail I'll receive. I think I can handle
that :)) . As for it being odd, well it's kind of my signature :)) . It's also
a way to make it look more like a "journal" in the old sense of the word,
that's to say like a paper journal. I find those electronic publications rather
unappealing, and they tend to disappear without saying where they've gone (you
can say I'm old-fashioned, but I'm only 26 :)) ).
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
