So, yes, I'm still here. And I'm getting kinda fed up with FB. But there aren't enough of my friends here in this venue to do the permanent switch. Yet. You could help make that happen, though. Or I need to commit to doing what a lot of my friends do, posting here (or Twitter, or whatever) and then dragging folks with me.
On the plus side, I can abandon all the jerks who've gotten themselves blocked for bad Internet behavior. May decide to make the switch before the end of this year.
Meanwhile, we keep on plugging away.
