Sorry about the lack of response on comments etc. Will be back in a couple of days.
(Is it just me, or is everything hurtling?)
Update: I am, of course, using this time usefully. What this means is that I'm tagging old posts, doing up to 25 a day (this could take me one month or more), after which I plan to prune the sidebar, discard most links and house-keep a bit.
No, this does not mean I am jobless. On the contrary.
So if your feedreaders go a little crazy, just ignore.
