I'm still alive, but with everything going on at work and at home I'm pretty ragged right now. I've been working on an essay or two that I wanted to post but it takes an act of will right now to string together a single paragraph. I'm also hoping to track down some unusual glitches on the back end of my website with the help of PivotX's lead developer, but that'll have to happen after I get a good night's sleep.
Frankly, I don't trust myself to not write something impressively stupid while feeling like my head is stuffed with Sculpey.
Lyssa's doing better - she's up and around but keeping close to home due to the weather. It seems that our apartment complex wasn't designed with people on crutches or in wheelchairs in mind, and navigating the staircases with limited mobility is pretty hazardous. She isn't in much pain right now but she is sleeping a lot, in part due to the medication she's on and in part because her body is busy regenerating the damaged tissue, which takes a lot out of you.
Chocolate with bits of chopped up bacon in it is amazing. I can't recommend it highly enough.
If anyone keeping track of my site with a feed reader is using the old /rss.xml or /atom.xml URLs, I suggest that you change over to the more standard /rss or /atom URLs. The earlier versions of Pivot generated static files, but PivotX generates those files on the fly. I hadn't realized that functionality would change so much in between major releases, otherwise I'd have given plenty of warning.
