Aaaaaaand we're back! Boy, did I miss you guys! Thanks for your well-wishes and such. It was a great trip, but it's much better to be back.
It's interesting that logging in to post comments was a drag for some folks.... I never noticed because I have to log in every time to leave these little num-nums, so I'm glad someone spoke up, so there are two changes when it comes to commenting:
1) You can now post anonymously. I'd love it if you'd sign your posts just so I know who ya are, but I'd rather you say something anonymously than not at all, so there ya go;
2) Comments will now be posted and readable in a new window, so it'll be easier to go back and forth.
Thanks for your suggestions, and for putting up with no new posts while I was gone.
