I'm home, but it's too late to do anything except plow through a weekend's worth of email right now. Normal blogging will resume Tuesday.
In the meantime, though, a reminder: I like comments! The more the better. And if you want to comment hassle free, it's easy: at the top right of the screen click on "Sign In," choose "Create New Account" and then enter your name and email address. You can use either a handle or your real name, whichever you like. Your email won't be displayed, and we won't use it send you spam or anything. That's it! It takes 30 seconds, and after a few minutes you'll get a confirmation email. Click the link, choose a password for your account, and you're done.
You can also personalize your account if you want to, but that's optional. If all you want to do is comment, just choose a name and password and you can comment away without ever having to encounter the annoying captcha prompt again.
