About meSWHetM (blah blah woof woof)

SCA: Joined in 1977, with a break 1998-early 2013; OK, I'm inactive again. (Ian Jameson)
SF Fandom: Joined 1979, inactive since 1998.
MLS UArizona 1988, Chicago Public Library 1988-1994, Oregon Historical Society Library 1994-2000, some regional on-call 2001-2003ish
HAM Tech-class license April 2001, inactive

Not horribly active in anything these days, combination of various infirmities. If it weren't for my being innately cheerful I'd really be depressed, as it is a certain level of depression is unavoidable. So I read silly books, and feel better. I spend way too much time sitting in front of my computer.

About my libraryJuly 29, 2017
The physical library is in the process of being severely downsized, as the current plan is to sell my home, pay off my sister & sister-in-law's mortgage, and move into their spare room; this will happen after my sister-in-law's niece moves out of it. So unless I go through and update a lot of entries to read not owned, or something like that, I'm going to be lying a lot. And funny thing, it would have to be based upon a physical inventory of what is still there, as I'm not keeping track of what's going away. Because of space constraints, I see a huge increase in my use of eBooks.
