Please excuse me for my recent lack of activity. I hosted some company for a while, and now I find myself with less than two weeks to host another party and get all my crap together before I embark on the journey to J-Land.
I'll try to find some more time for this, but updates will probably be light for another month or so. Once I get to Japan, I'll try to update fairly frequently (after I set up my internet service, of course).
There is also talk of adding another contributor to this blog, to fill in news and pieces when I'm not available. More on that another time.
