Been on the road all day yesterday, partly because I stoopidly set the alarm wrong and overslept, thereby missing my flight home and necessitating a re-schedule.
Anyway, I note that there appears to be something wrong with the comboxes the past 24 hours. We were getting a lot of spam, so I asked the webelves to create a spam filter. As near as I can tell, it appears to have metastasized into an Everybody filter. So the webelves are tweaking it and we should all be able to comment soon (unless you are an evil spammer).
Your longsufferance is appreciated!
Oh, and this week I’m going to experiment with turning the thingie back on that sends summaries instead of whole posts and see what the traffic numbers are. Click-throughs: the lifeblood of blogaciousness.
Finally, I had a great time out in Cincinnati, Columbus and Pittsburgh. Got to see some old friends, record an audiobook, wheel and deal on a possible new book, perhaps pick up some new work, give a fun talk to a crowd of about 500, go to Mass several times, see the excitement of Occupy Cincinnati, eat seafood in Kentucky, get mauled by four rambunctious daughters of a friend, hear Scott Hahn speak, hear Roy Schoeman speak, hang with the Oratorians in Picksboig, meet the great students at Carnegie-Mellon, meet a reader who actually bailed on a trip to a sports bar to come to my talk last night, eat KFC, sleep in a library, and experience the sheer autumnal gorgeousness of western Pennsylvania in October.
Also, flying across America in the fall, especially past Mt. Rainier… oo la la! What a country!
And best of all, my sweetie and the guys at the end of the journey There and Back Again. Thanks be to God!
