Who would have thought when I said I'd be quiet that I'd be quiet for so long? Certainly not me. I think this is the longest I've ever gone without posting here. First I went to Boston, and I expected to post from there but strangely found I had nothing to say. Then I returned home, and still had nothing much to say. Then the server that hosts this site was replaced. At that point I found I had a lot to say, but I couldn't. So now after nearly 48 hours of waiting, it's back up and I can post. Part of the slow-down was Movable Type related since I'm now using that to publish this site (so that had to be migrated to the new server as well). Anyway, enough excuses.
