And more apologies

(First posted on the old blog on December 23rd, 2009, at 8:55 PM)

I’ve had an “interesting” few months. First, I injured myself in a way that no one had ever done before, at least as far as my doctors could ascertain. Then, just as I appeared to be recovering from one “impossible” injury, I repeated the same “impossible” injury on my other side.

I am not exactly nimble at the moment, but I am A) home (a mixed blessing: when you don’t move well, having a call button is a handy thing), have a properly configured laptop in my bedroom/temporary prison, and C) have run out of every excuse not to get back to posting here (I hope).

I’m going to look over what I have written so far on part two of spiritual bungee jumping, and I’ll try to finish it tonight or tomorrow. Then I’ll post a review of a book by Barbara EhrenreichBright Sided.

Apologies for the extended absence

You know you’re not having a good couple of months when the most active telephone numbers in your PDA belong to orthopedic surgeons and physical therapy departments.

I am working on the next post, but it needs several more revisions to be presentable. I’ll get it up as soon as I can.

Apologies: I’ve been doing a lot of work

I’ve been busy, too busy, in fact (between the work and the tired) to post recently. I’ve not abandoned this blog. In fact I have a post partially written, waiting for me to find the time and energy to finish it. I don’t think I’ll be able to do so later today or tomorrow (I need to build a new system, and I’m adopting a new pet), but I should be able to get to it within the next three or four days.

Sorry- managed to crash my site

(From the old blog, and dated Friday, April 17, 2009, at 3:00 AM)

I managed to crash my own site by playing with Modules I Did Not Understand [TM]… don’t worry, the content is alive and well, and will be back up later tonight, this time On Software I Know Well [TM]. [Edited to add] Content has been restored, as has the theme. Assorting things like the rss feeds, etc, may still be in need of tweaking, and I need to deal with external links, but I’ve been sitting too long at this desk to deal with it tonight.

I’m already missing Drupal. WordPress is nice, but Drupal is much more powerful (assuming one doesn’t play recklessly with things one should not play with, thereby turning one’s database into powerless sludge). Perhaps once my foot (recovering from minor surgery) recovers, I’ll put Drupal back and keep my hands out of the development module cookie jar (yes, it was that<stupid).
