I've gone another several weeks without posting and I don't really know why. Sure, various things (personal, professional and global) have been going on, but none of them really explain or excuse my nonblogging. I've just been in an extended doldrum for a couple months, lacking the energy to do much of anything except play NetHack (at which I am largely sucking). In a week, I'll be heading to the beach for some vacation. Maybe, that'll recharge the batteries.
