It's quite sad. I love writing, but I base my writing on my reading. A few days ago my laptop got hosed. Fell off the table (my fault) with the lid open. Over 2.2 years, but still, it's sad. It's harder on this machine. At least, as of today, this machine is working pretty decently as a desktop (had been just a server). Expect the Great Seal of the United States (reverse) to dissapear from the blog, and no new ones to appear.
