First my computer decided to fuck up again - most everything appears to have been restored by a disruptive (though appreciated) back up process. Of course, that doesn't include the photos that were to comprise the bulk of my posts this week.
And, as of this evening, my moderated comments are "experiencing an error" about which "Blogger is aware" and is no doubt "working actively to resolve". I've disabled comment moderation while this gets sorted, but pls. note that a few comments are hanging in the vortex. I can see they're there but I can't access them. No doubt, this will be fixed. But in the odd event you don't eventually - which is to say within the scope of my absurd reply policy - receive a response, that's the reason.
On another note, I'm absolutely pissed off by all this. Thirty years ago I would have been floored by the technical functionality I now take completely for granted but, I can't help it, as a child of the modern age, I'm massively aggravated.
Rant over and out.
Except one PS: Before I write again I will have to come up with some new interesting stuff to say - off-the-cuff-style - while also attending curriculum night and getting the kid to a track meet and going through half a day of meetings tomorrow while still making a bunch of deadlines that are fast approaching their best before date. And I have a headache. So if you don't see me for a few days - and you might well, knowing my penchant for life-procrastination, that's the reason.
