hola all...hola Patrice,

while it is grand to think that i have some control over the use
of the name *hippie* in name or the affinity group that has emerged
out of the U.K. named *eletrohippies*--i don't--beyond the fact
that the group is using EDT's DDK (Disturbance Developer Kit).

i would send an email to them directly and complain about
about this abuse of said--*hippie* name.

as for *my* followers--i dont have any, perhaps you do?

ciao ciao,
