Hi;

You will have to refresh my memory about that one, I have totally forgotten.

She is the one who e-mailed me 1652 times and ended up in a mental hospital. She was obsessed with me.

Oh yes, I remember her well. What did she say?

She said she is at Sussex studying maths, as a first year (I assume she took a year out due to mental illness). She said she was sorry for taking a year to respond to me, and that a lot has happened. She wants to know how I am.

I'm not sure if I should respond to her.

That will be up to you. Is she well now?

I'm not sure, her e-mail was fairly short. Haven't spoken to her in over a year.

Did she have a nervous breakdown?

I'm not sure what her problem was, but that could be it. Honestly, she was a pretty weird person.

Could have been because she was ill.

It was definitely something mental, though.

Is she far away from you in terms of distance?

Fairly far, yes. I don't think I'll be seeing her again...

Then why worry? She is a phantom threat even if she is looney.

What if she threatened suicide?

It is a dumb question to ask but why would she?

She was unstable. But that's probably changed now -- there's nothing she could really blackmail me with anyway. I've replied to her, I'll see what she says.

I say give her the benefit of the doubt.

Will you help me if it is required?

Mission zetafunc.? Mr zetafunc. is a human being, he can not be reduced to a text file. Also, I have grown accustomed to following his comments and life adventures, many of which remind me of my own. Therefore, I do not wish him to be condensed into a text file.

We could publish that text file as "The Gospels of Mr. Zetafunc."
