The... other posts that were up on this blog and the other for some hours late last week were deleted without my reading the comments. So, if you did comment - and the two of you who did know who you are - I'm not ignoring any heartfelt sentiment or ire at my whining; whichever you may have sent. I just never saw it.
I have, however, learned my lesson, and will revert to my previous policy of keeping it to myself, save for occasional vague references.
Sorry to have inconvenienced anyone.
