Blog Update: Computer Issues & Illness


Hi all (and an especially large hello to regulars), just a bit of an update on the Blog. I haven’t posted much in the last week due to illness and was about to start doing so again when my computer bit the dust – died, gave up the ghost, packed it in… Anyway, I have now a new computer and currently I am in the process of setting it up, moving my files about, installing software, etc. It will still be a few days until I have everything sorted out and I am able to resume normal service. Thankfully I have been able to salvage all my content and data.

I’ll be seeking to bring the Blogs back online over the next few days – hopefully one or even two may be back with fresh posts tonight. Thanks for your patience.
