: Beloved Ladonians

: Where are all Ladonians? I know we are nomads, constantly on

: of a communications link.
: I challange you all to prove me wrong! (Hopefully I'm am.)
: Reply to this message, if only by stating you are out there. And by

To venerable lord Aslak Viking and all worthy ladonians!
A wishful illusion without depth? I do not think so. We are in
fact very real. I think, so I am, was it not so? And thoughts has in
fact a real depth. I hope anyway. But I am also concerned about where
our fellow ladonians may be. We are as you point out approx. 2,000
citizens. Do we hear from them all. Unfortunately not. It may be that
we have to think of something very spectacular to boost the interest
in participating in ladonian daily life. Let us think about it.
In the meantime, I found something that might be worth testing. There
is a program called ICQ that gives instant communication between the persons
who put this in their cans. Unfortunately not yet for macintosh users.
So I cannot myself use this. But the information says there will be
a Mac version soon. Try it out.
