I've been struggling to do much public writing (though I've been hard at work writing reports). That's why it may seem that I have dropped off the face of the world -- at least from the perspective of someone who sees me primarily through my blog.
I used to promise that I would be back in the saddle in my blogging, that I would be regularly writing. That remains the goal. I just won't promise to do until I know I am able to deliver.
