again - i'd like to thank guest-posters Noise and not-rimone for doing duty here while i was away last week. i'd love them to both continue posting here. I've also given Uranus the keys to the front-page. This is all a bit of a new experience for me - I've asked them all to preface their posts with an identifying 'hey - this is me' tag at the front end of each post - so hopefully none of you will be confused. i know how discombobulating it can be to read something only to find out later that it was written by someone other than who you'd expected.
if anyone else wants to jump in and volunteer for frontpage 'status' - just lemme know. you all rock and i'd f'p all of your comments if i had the time. one thing is for sure - most comments deserve to get the widest audience.
