It’s just that the original Glosa website will soon be blanking out:

I’d miss it if it disappeared, even (or maybe especially) that low-tech image of you!

So I’ve mirrored it on one of my domains:

** Very kind. I am in a financial mess, and need to economise: I had two websites and now will have none. Will, when I settle down in Lithgow, set up a commercial site offering my services as an editor.

Not sure what to do with the zeta links; I’m tempted to leave them all as is, for historical purposes. Or I could just put an HTML strike through them. Or maybe wrap a museumy frame around the whole thing.

** Zeta was bought out by Pacific Internet from Singapore. The Zeta address is no more. I will still be operating the Pacific address, but must concentrate energies on working up the editing as a retirement enterprise. Had I planned my life better, this abrupt shut down would not have happened. I still think Glosa is suitable as the IAL, but know that Esperanto has the organisation. With all of the recent attacks on traditional diplomacy, the idea of a World Nuspeak seems even further away than it did in 1992.
