Erickson Expose


Just got home from my exciting trip, and only have a little bit of time and energy tonight, but I felt that should inform those of my readers who were worried and asked or encouraged me. The primary mission of the journey was a success.  I managed to locate and speak with Doctor Livingston Erickson in the wilds of darkest Ohio.

He is alive, and as normal as he ever is.  His vanishment from the social media scene has been caused by a fluke series of electronic frustrations.  It began with a PC that ate its own hard drive.  He located a used laptop, and spent several days building bookmarks, and teaching it other tricks.  Just when he got it domesticated, it went blind.  It still computed, but nothing he did could get it to display on the screen.

His internet access recently changed to a new, local Wi-Fi tower. In Ohio, they build these on top of tall hills, in an area well-known for lightning storms, but apparently no-one thought to install a copper grounding cable.

He had tamed yet another computer, to the point where he knew he had over 3000 unread emails, when the inevitable happened. He’s now impatiently waiting for fried circuits to be replaced, and a ground cable installed, and feels he should be ready to re-assume the title of Supreme Commenter within a week or so.

He and his wife were overjoyed to meet me and my wife, but were absolutely amazed that anyone would make the trip, and that others would be concerned enough to urge and encourage me to do so. I’ll give more details when that section of the Blog Fellowship series is published.

Rest easy, the lost is found, even if he’s silent on WordPress a bit longer. In the meantime, spread the word – King John the Digital is alive and well.

My personal thanks to AFrankAngle, whose assistance and guidance made this trip the enjoyable success that it was. Now Soon, back to our regularly scheduled program.

    The wave of collective awesome energy from both you and Erickson occupying the same square footage was felt all the way over here on the east coast!

    Glad to hear your trip was safe and that he is doing well. 🙂

      And they said that the earthquake was caused by fracking. 😉
      I’ve seen a few of your comments recently on other sites. It is so nice to have you visit my hovel here in Canuckistan. I’m a night owl, but what are you doing up at this time, getting up early for a book-tour, or sobering up? 😆

    I’m not convinced that encouraging Erickson is a good idea.


    • Archon's Den says:

      Me neither, but…. Ohh! – If you’d just seen him languishing in the seventh level of Amish electronic Hell. 😉


    • Now, come on, ‘Rants, be honest. You KNOW encouraging me is a very bad idea! 😀
      Sorry I didn’t get here sooner, Archon. As you can well imagine, Wednesday was a very bad day for me, especially once I heard the dead soldier was from the RHLI’s sister unit. My porch flies both the US and Canadian flags, as it has since Monday. Believe me, Canada does not mourn alone.

    So glad to hear of your success in the states. And, yes, grounding is something that is a really good thing. A house next door wasn’t grounded for some ungodly reason that I never found out why…but we have these tall pines that have a central root and the trees seem to send out leaders to pull in lightning strikes from all over. Well, the house caught on fire once and was hit another time before the neighbors discovered there was no grounding. Boggles my mind… 🙂

    Sounds like you had a nice getaway. Take it easy.

      We did, indeed, and thanx for reading about it. There are other posts coming up with more, hopefully humorous, details, about this, and other segments of the journey. Feel free to return and read how Ohio Flint struck Scottish steel, to produce intellectual sparks. 😀
