An unplanned hiatus in the blogging due to ongoing computer / internet connection problems ... coupled with malware afflictions as well. As the university was closed during the Christmas break, I couldn't access our IT support desk, and the whole situation tried my patience (very frustrating when everything freezes time and again). Despite our IT guys' best efforts this past week, attempts at repair failed, and it all culminated in the crumbling demise of my sturdy SCU laptop which had been serving me so well these past years :'-(
I'm working with a small loan laptop for now. I'll try and catch up in a few posts.
