I recently added Meebo to the blog. This will allow anyone who logs on and checks out the Reference blog to IM me right from this blog---feel free to ask a question, or to just say hi.

If it says splrefdept is online, I'm here. If it says splrefdept is offline, you can also leave a message.

The Meebo IM chat box in on the left hand side of the blog, right underneath my handsome picture.
