A randomly selected quotation:
 If logic tells you that life is a meaningless accident, don't give up on life. Give up on logic. - Shira Millgrom

Almost back!

After surgery, chemo, radiation, and managing to completely shut the site down for six weeks while doing a simple upgrade, I'm almost back. There are still some things broken, a few I know about and probably a few that I don't, but but the daily mailings have been going out since Thanksgiving and I'm finding fewer things to repair. (Lots of ideas for moving forward, perhaps this new year will allow that.) Let me know if you see something that isn't working right and I'll add it to the list.
