contraction mapping

Feels like 2004 all over again.

Or at least links to two posts therefrom. Firstly anyone whom I might send a Christmas card too is invited to update their address in this poll if it's changed since they last did (or if they've never seen it before).

Secondly, whilst finding that, I'm reminded of this post about IM clients which is still true and unresolved. People with strong opinions please comment.
