My home computer has made it abundantly clear that its death will be sooner rather than later, I bit the bullet and bought a new one. The migration from one machine to the next has been less than smooth* - turns out the old computer wasn't saving things in a useful way - and that has thrown a wrench in the Martini-works.
Soon, I hope, this will all be but a distant memory. Until then, however, expect more erracticness than usual.
* I'm about to reach the "smashing both with hammers" stage and go back to writing letters. Which wouldn't be all bad, frankly.
