If you are reading this, then I am back with a small apology.

If you are reading this, then I have gone.

On holiday, that is.

I brought my little laptop with me, but forgot the wall-wart!

I'll be popping in as borrowed laptops allow, but otherwise I'll be properly back in just over a week and a half.

(UPDATE: I type on Friday 7th, 21:30 UK time. I will be unlikely to post again until a week on Sunday. For those who asked, we are going to based in Alnmouth for the next week.)

So, I return, and find somebody has flushed a little too imaginatively, and left it dripping down the walls...

An apology

My email notifications say I have had hundreds of comments recently - I doubt I will read them all, so I apologise to anybody who does not receive a reply. If it was important, PM me.

I'll second your nomination to the Knex Hall of Shame for superfluous "I will be going away, I am thinking about going away, I am away, I am coming back, I'm back and I was gone did anyone notice" topic postings and nonsuch. Yeah, we'll miss you in you absence but we will launch 99 flaming kites aloft in the night sky to signal you if needed. BTW, there must be some way to improvise a field-expedient power supply when you forget your wall-wart or are you rendered powerless away from your maker shed? Enjoy your holiday. I would be more impressed if there were random sightings of you on holiday and somebody posted that instead or your announcement of being on holiday.

Hah, the first time I went on holiday from ibles (before your time, youngling), there was panic and consternation all around (the community was much smaller then).

Since then, I've always told somebody when I'm going to be offline, just in case they need to ease frazzled nerves. If I ever go, and none of the regulars know why, then you need to worry.
If I ever go and none of the irregulars know why, then everything is pretty much normal.
If you are irregular, I don't think peeple need to know or want to know if you go. TMI, more fiber to you, my friend.
Moral fiber is good, but it's no replacement for prunes and bran muffins.
and a new can of air freshener.
Yes, to freshen the can.
Isn't that half-moon cutout in the door supposed to do the trick?
You'd think so. But sometimes the entire solar system is needed. BTW- I actually have a little too much "comfort-shack" experience (but not in the US). I was in one during an earthquake. For a second, I thought my wife hit it with the truck. I broke through the floor of another.
Note to self: cesspools are not for swimmin.
