G’day. Things have been busy in the last few weeks. I’ve completed setup of six new blogs, and two so far, the Checkerboards of the Gods and the Hypershard Dispatches, have gone public, and I’d like to thank those who’ve subscribed to them:

You people are awesome.

There are four more blogs, and at least two of them will be launched next week until all sites are publicly accessible. That leaves my two test blogs, though those are only for diagnosing and fixing issues on the others.

This Caturday, I’ve completed taking notes from another course, and will be formatting them over this next week. I’ve a review to finish, on Stu Barton’s collection of SF tales ‘Isolation.’

I’m still getting used to Google Chrome, though it works well. There’s just a little about the layout that’s unfamiliar, but it’s my default browser now, so no biggie there.

I’ve no special projects in mind for the next few weeks, though I’ll be catching up on some I’ve yet to complete. May you all have a pleasant week ahead of you, and a better one otherwise. I’ll settle for so-so myself.

Talotaa frang.
