I know the blog and podcast have been quiet lately. The problem(s) is my old computer basically died. This left me with my newer (probably 8 years old) laptop. It's like going from a Model T to a Dodge Dart (or better yet a K car – remember those?).
I was able to squeak out a few podcast episodes with it before it went flaky. The good news is my new computer should be showing up today or tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who asked, “Are you ok?” I'm fine and about to get a whole lot better.
