In the latest in a series of incredibly irritating blog-related screw-ups, the last three posts somehow managed to vanish from steelypips, taking the comments with them. Republishing brought the posts back, but not the comments.
I have no idea what caused this, but things have been notably wacky of late between Blogger and affordablehost.com, our Web hosting service. Happy Holidays, my ass.
I'll see if I can find a way to recover the comments when we get home, but for now, I'm going to log off my parents' dial-up connection before I do any more damage.
Oh, and Merry Christmas, or whatever the appropriate seasonal holiday greeting is for you.
I'm Back, Time for Vacation
My recent silence hereabouts has been involuntary-- for the past week, I've been unable to publish via Blogger, and Blogger support hasn't responded to my requests for service.
Now, finally, the damn thing has come unstuck... And tomorrow, we're going to the land of slow dialup access for the holiday weekend. Typical.
Anyway, there's some slightly dated new content below. More will follow next week, unless something else breaks.
