The new computer has just arrived, which means that over the course of the next few days all kinds of problems will likely surface. Yes, that's how I think. If I seem to have disappeared from the net, rest assured that I am undertaking technological actions such as banging rocks together and painting pictures of a working computer on the walls of my cave.
In the interim, feel free to browse around the earlier posts, and if you visit infrequently then "follow" the blog so that you'll be alerted when the cave paintings fix any difficulties with the transition from this hamster-driven one (which works) to the super-cool one (which will likely have glitches).
Speaking of hamsters, my daughter's hamster escaped some time yesterday, and has not yet been found. No doubt it will go and die in an air conditioning duct, stinking up the house for a month. Beautiful.
