Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but Blogger was taking a break for a while. Seems a "maintenance update" was actually about causing the need for more maintenance, rather than preventing the need for maintenance. Oops.
I had this really great post that apparently got lost in hyperspace; search teams are combing the 11-dimensional spaces for it, and if it shows up I'll re-post. Otherwise, I'll return to some of the news that's been buzzing around.
