I've been chatting to Pat and Rhino on another thread about this, heading off on an adventure, no Internet for about 6 months.  I thought I would be leaving next week, but been brought forward to tomorrow, so signing off tonight.  Will miss you guys and Chi so much!!  A friend is taking over my Internet connection, maybe she will join Chi ;D  Take care, one and all  :-C

It's "somewhere" in the Eastern Cape.  Not exactly "deepest, darkest Africa" but very, very rural.  I'm going a bit blind, actually, not 100% sure what I'm walking into, but that's the point!!  A trusted relative is involved with the company, so I'm just going along for the ride and the adventure  ;D

I'm going to help build a school from scratch, handle the admin, wages, etc. Water from tankers, electricity from generators for a long time. A complete change from the bustle of Johannesburg!!

Gaye Christine, we will have to catch up on one of my visits to South Africa - send me a message ...

Hi Rhino. I'm actually going to be disappearing for a while, about 6 months, going on an adventure in deepest, darkest Africa with no Internet access. The withdrawal from Chi is going to be hard  ;D ;D

Or do they not matter because they didn't make any lasting contribution to society?

Please don't get me wrong, Pat.  They absolutely matter, and should all be pardoned even if deceased.  I think perhaps why people feel so strongly about Turing's case (at least partly the reason I do) is not who he was as much as that his humiliation was so public and lasting.  More "anonymous" people would have been humiliated (tragically so), but only amongst their circle.
