I'm happy to see Typepad has overcome the denial of service attack. (At least I could still tweet stuff, and we have seen lots of stuff today.)
I'm still very much involved in editing tasks, but I'll take a break now and then to find and post some news. Again, thanks for your patience. And by all means, when I'm not posting for some reason, make yourself at home, rummage through the links, and see what you find.
As for that lingering aroma of sulfur, that's from the holes in hell being warmed up for DOS artists.
