WHOOPS! WE DISAPPEARED FOR A WHILE THERE!

It appears as though my blog was offline and unavailable for the last two days as a result of an unanticipated problem that arose during some planned website updates. You may have noticed that posts to my blog have been a little thin of late and that is because I have been working very hard […]
