My computer was able to be repaired so hopefully Bytes will be a daily occurrence once more.
It was strange being without a computer, a freeing in some ways, although my iPhone enabled me to avoid any severe withdrawal symptoms. I do think, however, that I experienced the Kubler—Ross’ 5 stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. But I’m back now so find me an empty lap, fellas . . .
