The reason for the dearth of posts of late is because I've been waiting six weeks for backup software so that I can make a record of this entire blog. Blogger apparently retains 300 posts and then starts rolling old articles off the end. This is my 301st post and I've manually backed up the first. I won't be posting again until the software arrives. So far my experience has not been good and has amounted to a catalog of miscommunication and incompetence. If the company concerned (you know I'm talking about you) doesn't get its act together and either get me the said program or refund my $65 it will be the subject of an extremely disgruntled post in the next week or so.
