Vacation Notice!

Gentle readers, you may have noticed, I haven’t updated much in the last week. That’s because I’m in Hawaii, enjoying a birthday-celebratory vacation. A little present to myself as it were. I probaby won’t have any other updates until I get back, but until then, my computer is hopefully diligently recording everything I’m missing.

Until I write again, Aloha!
