Didn't mean to go quiet there. I had a few posts syndicated, which due to a recently-discovered fight between me and Google's scheduler doohickey, ended up scheduled for NEXT August. I've got them rescheduled, and will be kicking them out in the next week. Beyond that, school has been stupid busy (second year electrical training is supposedly the hardest year), and Bex and I have been working on some Big Damn News (tm) that I'll be revealing very shortly.
I promise to try not to do that disappearing act again.
