I'm sorry for the light - well, non-existent - posting recently. Sickness, a supervisor, rolling blackouts, the enormous incompetence of the people who run my university's computer system and other factors have conspired to keep me away from blogging. In any case, my posting should return to normal from today, assuming (1) there is power and (2) the internet is not down on campus.
(Living in a third-world country has its upsides. Really.)
