Access Shield Preface


The Web is a convenient space for publication of our address data. However, as honest net.citizens, we must admit that it is not a great place for placing confidential data.

Although address information is not "I'll have to kill you after I tell you" grade Top Secret, some amount of confidentiality must be preserved. After all, if the amount of junk mail we get every day is any indication, it seems like too many folk know of us already ...

For now, to keep it simple, I have restricted access to the address page to those of us who know a secret code word. And that code word, for the time being, is the last name of any of the Gymkhana Presidents or Institute Directors during 1973 to 1978.

Of course, there is a catch!! I no longer remember all the names of them dudes!!! But, if you remember a few, try them all and one will surely let you in.

One sure to work is that Rakesh guy. No, not Pandey! The OTHER Rakesh guy... Yeah the guy who joined the World Bank. No, that's not why I thought of him.

When you try to access the address list page, you will be asked to provide usercode and password. Dono ek hi hain! (Those of you who have forgotten your Hindi, you must know somebody who hasn't, don't you?)

If I have been totally obtuse and too oblique, send me email and remember to address me by my nickname. You think I'll just give away the security key to any old bakait? What'd you think, I'm stoopid or something? No, don't answer that.

Isn't this cloak and dagger stuff fun?

Oh, by the way, the next time you visit and want to avoid coming here to read all this verbosity, you can go directly to the address list by clicking on the last two letters of the phrase. In other words, clicking on "address li" brings you here. "st" asks for your password and directly takes you to the protected address list.
