Well folks, I want to apologize for the delay in getting back to the daily hacks. My best-laid plans to get my computer fixed up over the weekend were upended by a number of complicated family issues — everything had to take a back seat to parenting, which meant no desk time and general exhaustion. I just haven't found the two or three contiguous hours it will take to get my email back in order, and my mental tank is dangerously near empty.
I hope you'll bear with me a little longer. I expect all should be back to normal by next week, but I'll try for sooner than that. As for "filling up my tank," I'm working on that, too.
