Back. Sort Of.

So why the hiatus, you ask. Well it wasn’t a trip to Hawaï, nor was it a relaxing ten days of soaking up the sun in my back yard. It was in fact something entirely different. It’s been a rough ride — but we’ll be back in the loop soon. It’ll take some time, as I’m sure you’ll understand.

In the mean time: how ’bout that Gail, huh? Oh and hey, Bálint, my dear friend: thanks for keeping this place alive while we were off.
