I know you are all celebrating my (temporary) absence from the blogosphere, but I want to interrupt your revelry with this update: My computer has been having seizures. I mean this literally, I start it up and the monitor image begins to distort and "shake". It also occasionally won't start up at all, but rather turns a brilliant hue of purple, followed by an odd morphing into other colors. No, I'm not on acid. It also occasionally talks of wanting to "Phone Home" and going to a farm with lots of rabbits. I suppose that is what I get for naming it Hal. In any event, it won't work for more than five minutes without shutting down, making blogging a pretty futile effort. (This is attempt 4 on this post) I managed to convince Dell to send me a new computer, which, according to them, should arrive somewhere between 7 business days and three years from now. So, provided Hal doesn't bludgeon me to death in the interim, I should soon return to my hallowed place in your web browsing history, just after Mauritanian Frisbee Golf highlights.

Do I still get your Balvenie if "Hal" cripples or smites you?

My father Hal is much nicer than that evil computer...

Of course, my good man. And let it be known that Hal of course is so named in homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey, and not in any way meant to slander one Hal Madorsky, who is, in point of fact, a righteous dude.
