This blog has been rather neglected over the past two months… I lost my primary blogging & browsing computer, Amos – a Dell Inspiron 1721 laptop running Vista - to a hardware failure in late June, and then my six-month old Windows 7 HP Pavilion desktop started tanking with software problems less than a week later. I was already overloaded with an abnormal level of professional work, and was also struggling to maintain engagement in a Distance Learning class I had fallen well behind in. It’s been a frustrating summer, during which it’s seemed I’ve gotten nothing done. At least I finally finished that DL course. It’s time to recollect myself, and turn the page.
