I managed to fall off the Internet again, thanks to my ten-year-old laptop deciding one night a few months ago that it was time for its modem to become a small, light, actually-relatively-useless-for-the-job paperweight. That kind of sucked.
Now I have a new laptop. And its modem works -- see, I'm posting and everything.
So basically, maybe with the Plugfics again, dammit.
