"The report of my death was an exaggeration." -- Mark Twain
I am, in fact, still around, even though you haven't seen hide nor hair of me in weeks. This may continue for a while yet, sadly, as work and personal commitments are savagely eating all of my free time. Still, I've plenty of tales in me yet and hope to return to a more active role here as soon as I can. Bear (heh) with me.
