A long absence ended

Long time, no write. I know. You all thought I had forgotten where the system was and was going to let it languish forever. Not true! Between the travels to New Zealand, Australia, Salem, and London, I just didn't want to get a false start before I had a chance to get back into the swing of things.

Likely things will be a bit slow for the next few days, as I try to get re- assimilated into the world of here and now and toss off this cold that I seem to have picked up visiting our friends across the pond.
