Well, I just got off the phone with Odd Man Out and his two-year-old computer is apparently fried. (Along with his recently-completed novel.) Like most of us, Dave is middle-aged, unemployed and freaked out.
Now, I’d like to point out that he’s really a tremendous writer (you know, the kind that really annoys me) and I’ve been looking forward to him finally getting his work to a publisher. (The work which is on that fried laptop.) Well, now he’s pretty much in the depths of despair. So if any of you can feel his pain and want to help, hit the donate button (make sure you include a note) and I’ll get it to him.
