and now i've just got even crappier.
After periods of long absence while i was on hols in the states, and then another long period of absence while i was just too busy/lazy, i am going to inflict on you yet another long absence.
I am moving today, and it will take a little while to get my 'puter back online in the new place. Theoretically it shouldn't take too long, but in reality these things are always a huge nuissance.
I promise to write up the nice, big, ranting piece I've been composing in my head for the last two weeks as soon as I get my hook-up back. It's titled "God's Rotweiller in the Doghouse." You'll love it.
