I'm putting Open the Pod Bay Doors, HAL into an intermission for a while. I'm pounding on some other, bigger writing projects, which makes trimming back assorted peripheral distractions ("Squirrel!") a necessity. I still respond to activity notifications, so feel welcome to browse and comment or contact me via my main site. And those blog rolls on the right are still my main avenues to bloggish favorites. So don't think of me as lost through the Stargate so much as just hiding on the other side of the monolith for a while. Thanks.
