    Dear Colleagues:

    The next many days, until the very end of this month, I will be travelling
    to and attending the ALLC/ACH conference at the University of Glasgow
    <http://www2.arts.gla.ac.uk/allcach2k/>, then walking along the West
    Highland Way with mirabile dictu no Internet connection. I know, I could
    bring a laptop with a satellite up-link, pause by the side of the trail
    from time to time or tap into the local telephone system from B&Bs in
    Drymen, Rowardennan, Inverarnan and so forth, and do my duty as editor of
    Humanist, but I won't. Instead I'll perhaps come to understand better why
    Dougie Maclean sings so passionately about Scotland. High time, too, as I'm
    sure my colleagues in that fine country will be muttering as they read this

    The University of Virginia will keep your messages safe, so please continue
    to send them. I'll be wired while at the ALLC/ACH and attentive to my duties.

    See you there, I hope. As Allen Renear once said to me (in a little
    restaurant in Providence RI, I think it was), one tends to have more of the
    intellectual life among the people who gather for the ALLC/ACH than at any
    other professional conference. In 2001 the conference will be at NYU, for
    which see <http://www.nyu.edu/its/humanities/ach_allc2001/index.html>. So,
    if the width of the Pond is keeping you away this year....
