Sorry I haven’t been posting here much lately. Three things have been preventing me:

  • I had to send my beloved iBook back to Apple to repair a display issue. Luckily, even though my laptop is out of warranty, Apple covered the cost of the repair, which would have been over $300 (motherboard replacement). I took it to the Apple Store in Washington Square on Sunday, and had it back in my possession on Wednesday evening; they had to send it back to “Depot”, wherever that is, to do the repair. Much quicker than my friends thought it would be…

  • Secondly, my new kitten, Smacky, is taking up a lot of my time. He’s a bundle of energy! I have metric tonnes of “cute kitten stories” to post…

  • Lastly, a lot of my writing energy is going to a new site, Geeks Against Bush, a site my friends and I have founded to collect information and well-reasoned arguments for sending George W. Bush back to Crawford, TX. We call ourselves “Tech Support for broken America”. Check out the site and contribute to the discussion in our forums — even if you disagree with us. Maybe even especially if you disagree with us. We want to hear what you have to say.

OK, actually, there’s been a fourth situation that’s been taking my time and attention lately, that is hopefully dealt with… you may or may not be reading more about that here. But even if you do, it will be in non-specific terms…
