So the Powerbook known as Acomys (the spiny mouse) is in for maintenance. Acomys holds all of TfK's sophisticated news gathering apparatus, our usual email conduits, the software we use for blogging, and on and on. There are plenty of non-computer projects I can do, but expect limited blogging for a while.

It's a small thing, but it could wind up being tricky to repair. For some inexplicable reason, the CD drive doesn't line up right with the CD slot, rendering it useless. Hopefully it will be back in action in a couple days.

Anyway, just letting you know why you won't see as much incisive commentary and random web zen for a few days, at least. As always, fans are welcome to contribute to the Acomys recovery fund by clicking on the hand over there on the sidebar, or you could hook me up with this bad boy.

Thanks for your patience.
