Spence looks a little worn out today. His fingers are sore from all that tweeting yesterday – he’s a very bad typist, mostly hits delete, Bernie says – and he doesn’t remember a thing. Admin says there’s a lot of stuff that requires clarification, whatever that means, but Spence doesn’t seem to be listening.

Bernie says we should thank everybody who participated in the tweetchat so I will. Thanks! One thing they’ve been batting around here is how many countries Dog On It and Thereby Hangs A Tail have been or will be published in. They think the answer is 17 so far, but a couple of those are English-speaking, so the number of languages is probably 15. Does that make sense? Not to me.
