No, I haven't been exterminated off the face of the planet. I am still here, still tinkering on my K-9.
7th December last year, I came to my laptop that was running fine a few minutes earlier and it just had a black screen. It could not be revived. It took over two months until work managed to get a replacement laptop to me with all my data recovered on it. So now I can access the web more easily and get back to blogging my creative endeavours.
More posts to follow shortly, so stay tuned.
