A return, of sorts...

After blogging every day for maybe ten consecutive days — a real record for me — I’ve been absent for the past four. But for a very good reason.

My entire system crashed Tuesday morning. And I lost everything.

Lemme repeat: I lost everything. Every. God. Damn. Thing.

Every program. Every file. All gone. All bye-bye.

What caused it? Homeland Security? Bill Gates? Internet munchkins?

Who knows? But I am back. Tentatively. I am starting from scratch. For some reason, my PC refuses to “find” my printer, which is a nuisance. There are still plenty of things to sort out. But I’m back and blogging — and will be doing so on a regular basis again shortly.

Wish me luck.

Good Luck. Remember that regular backups are important.

Now you frakin' tell me! Really, I know better, but bad habits die hard.

Aaack! My sympathies. I've been there -- but thankfully not recently.

But I don't back up often enough either.

Sorry to hear your PC crashed. This story is a reminder to me to back up more often.

This is a more mundane explanation than I had imagined. After all, you had just finished posting El Ray's article on how to free yourself, and you had written admiringly about El Ray's disappearance off the grid and all ... then you disappeared.

I'm glad you're back, but it would have been fun and somewhat legendary (although scary for us at first) if this had been your way of doing the El Rayo.
