So I changed my little blog header the other day, to read “Specializing in treckle lansing disputes”. This is, if you don’t know, a nod to Vernor Vinge’s novel A Fire Upon the Deep, wherein a posting to the Galactic Net (also known as the Net of a Million Lies) from Arbitration Arts Corporation at Firecloud Nebula contains the following:
Arbitration Arts specializes in treckle lansing disputes. As such, we
have few common business interests with natural races or Threats Group.
Now, three or four days later, when I do a Google search for “treckle lansing“, this blog is the first hit. Right above all the Russian copies of A Fire Upon the Deep hosted, one suspects illicitly, on the web.
Well, it amused me, anyways.
