no, really, "not dead yet"

A whole bunch of life happened since that last entry – a hospital stay, a head cold or three, a house guest – and so I haven’t really made any progress towards any of those things I talked about doing. They’re still coming though, so just you hold tight.

In totally-different news, I’m going to be in Chicago-land for a good chunk of next week, and may have some free time if anybody wants to get coffee or beer or lunch or whatever and talk about weblogs or Linux or Emacs or any of the crud I natter on about here. Next Tuesday, I’m in Iowa City; same deal applies there. Drop me a line at the usual spot.
