Back Again

Obviously, I've been away for awhile. This is related to several factors, including my incompetence regarding disk repartitioning which led to the most recent post. I was also soured for awhile based on my experiences with certain manipulative evil bloggers out there on the lunatic fringe. Frankly, I find it difficult to find internet "places" where civility is maintained. Many social bloggers prefer not to moderate comments, in the name of free speech/expression, and/or because allowing anything tends to bring hits. Why in G-d's name any noncommerical entity would care about getting a lot of hits is beyond me....but put many people on the internet and it's no holds barred verbal fisticuffs in response to even the most innocent of comments.

So... Hi Ya!
