Morning/afternoon everyone, enooooooormous thanks again to the legend that is UT for all her completely wonderful work the last few days. I’m in the same middle-of-nowhere spot as last year, enjoying the rain – :???: – so wasn’t able to be around while traveling and trying to sort out an internet connection. Still struggling on that front, I have a moody dongle thingie that only started working occasionally from this morning, but I should have a new gadget later today that will sort things out. So, I had to abandon today’s R&S efforts because the connection kept dropping, leading to me using exceedingly bad language.
Normal-ish service will – hopefully – be resumed later.
