Apologies to those who have become accustomed to visiting this site, for posting nothing for a month. I have been on vacation. It had been my intention to keep posting from the road, but one thing and another prevented this. It turns out, for example, that there are now very few Internet Cafes in either France or Canada. Everyone is now set up for wireless. But my laptop died on the road.
Anyway, I hope everyone had a good summer. And I note that Andrew Coyne is worse than I am on this. He has posted nothing on his (recommended) blog for ages.
