With all the trips around the country, it is now time for me to take another one. Among many other places, I have been to Washington, New York, Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Florida and Georgia in the last 5 months alone. This time, it is kind of a long term move. I found some doctors up north where I may have a better chance of getting better. I am moving up to San Francisco area within a week.
What this means for you in terms of interacting with me and my site is that I might be responding to e-mails and approving comments within a span of about 12 hours instead of the usual average of 2. It is easy for me to write posts while I am offline though. After moving, I will have PeoplePC dial-up internet for a while. I will later get Comcast, which will probably get me speeds of up to 6 Mbps, even though my first choice is the new Verizon FIOS, with which I could get a constant and steady rate of 15 Mbps downloads. Since San Francisco does not have Verizon FIOS as far as I know, Comcast will do. Until I get any good broadband connection, my online adventures may be somewhat slow during the month of February.
If you live in Southern California and we have not had a chance to meet yet, I might be coming back here once in a while a day or so. May be we can hang out then. If you live in Northern California, let me know and we can get together some time. For me, it is always nice to meet online people in person, except for the time when an online person turned out to be an obsessed individual who immediately started making plans for us to be together forever and started following me everywhere and making interesting threats. Getting a restraining order can be a very interesting experience sometime.
Orange County has given me shelter for almost 10 years, with occasional prolonged disruptions of different sorts in between. From opportunities to making money to having fun to meeting good people to facing life to dealing with drama to taking care of childish people to getting stabbed to dealing with people from other states who disappoint you even when you dedicate everything to help them, Orange County has made a lot of things possible. I want to see if Northern California will produce more positive experiences compared to Orange County.
Thank you for supporting me via this site all these years time. Even though changing cities should not affect a site, I know my site could not have come this far without your constant interaction, support and feedback. Thank you.
I personally find the Bay Area beautiful and full of life. Now it is time to find out if I find it as attractive living there as I did visiting the area.Follow @besz
