No, I did not drop off the face of the Earth.
What did happen was that I exhausted my article buffer, and took a step back to write, plan the future article schedule, lose my job (again), and play an unhealthy amount of video game.
But despite all appearances to the contrary, the blog is not dead. I have been writing, and several posts are already in the queue. The final schedule will likely be closer to one post a week. Expect updates before the end of the month.
Thank you all for your patience.
