Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying it.

As for your neighbors, have you tried sending them sexually suggestive gingerbread men in the mail? I am hard-pressed to think of anything that would delight me more than receiving erotic cookies from an anonymous source.

Ye gods that was quick — thanks so much! I'm now happily using the new end-point and loving it. I made public all the updates to my screen-scraping plugin Static Discussion via Hubski. This plugin is designed to be used with Pelican, a static website generator, but the code is fairly basic Python and could easily be cribbed for other purposes.

I also defined all the URLs in a conf file so that the end-points can easily be updated without revving the code. If you decide on a better name than "tree", I can just redefine the end-point in the settings.

If you're looking for suggestions for future books, I've just had my novel Radium Baby published and I can arrange free copies for the Hubski book club. It's a comedy/adventure novel set amid the prohibition, radium baths, and Egyptological excavations of 1927 — there are enough robots, giant hornets, and cannibal bishops to satisfy anyone!

I can arrange some promotional days on Amazon so people can download it for free. All the Hubskiyites are so generous, the least I can do is share it. Let me know if you're interested! It could also make for some spirited discussion with input from the author.

This is great - I love those little mysteries you find tucked away between the pages of a book. You're so lucky you were able to track it down. I've got old photos and slips of paper I doubt I'll ever be able to trace. Still, the mystery is part of the fun. Did you ever find out who this Dr. Kreik was? I've been looking around (curiosity will be the death of me) and found something you'll like. It's a picture of the man himself, Dr. William F. Krick of 340 N Fifth St, Reading: http://news.google.com/newspapers?

It has to be the same guy - the address is the same and all. They held a little wingding in his honor at the "Elks' Home", which is a building run by the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks!
