The hard drive on my iMac died completely a week ago and the monitor was cracked in the process of getting the computer in for repair. I won’t have it back before January 11 at the earliest. I’ll do my best to feed this blog but doing it from my iPhone is having an impact (as you may have noticed). It appears that the Time Capsule that stores my backups and serves as a router is also dying. So things are in flux.
