Just to let folks know, I had an email outage yesterday, so that from about 10.25 am on Sat. May 23rd to about 12.45 am (just after midnight) of Sunday May 24th my mailbox behaved as if filled up and all messages sent to me seem to have bounced. So if you sent me something important (say, a paper proposal for the Flieger festschrift), please re-send.
And now, back to preparing the next post (although given online access iffyness when traveling, it may be a day or two before I get it posted.
