Speaking of catching up with old friends, I went to see Mark Kerr in Belfast last Saturday night. Mark and I know each other well from the old fidonet days, and I guess we haven’t had much contact since I moved to Banbridge, but it was great to see him and his family again. Part of the motivation for that specific timing was another old friend visiting, JoHo, another veteran of fidonet (in case you didn’t know), who was over visiting Ireland (some kind of pilgrimage to Bushmills probably ;-)) with his friend Goran.
Mark had a BBQ on, that we briefly left for a surprising, but really fun diversion (I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you), then we got back, ate a few burgers, drank some wine/coke/whiskey and chattered our way into the small hours. It was really nice to meet up with old friends and meet new people too. I think it’s nice that there are some people you can go for years between seeing, but it still feels like old times when you see them again. So I guess it’s my turn to come to Sweden again now, Jack.
