Poetic Discourse: First Year-to-Year Decline In Subscriber Numbers?

Reader’s Pieces: The mysterious workings of ProviBloc

This article really represents only my view, and mine alone. I just wrote down my thoughts and (self-)observations derived from living in Provi as one of the rock-hugging, rat-harassing, salvager-fitting and nrds-loving fun and friendly crowd we have in our nice little 0.0 garden (mis-interprete …
