There's a problem with the circuit breaker in the plane, so we're getting an extended visit at scenic DFW. Which is actually OK, because I have this thing against getting on a plane where the power doesn't work.
In the mean time, thanks to all for your patience. A bunch of you left very thoughtful comments on my "Why I'm not a conservative" post - comments that really deserve an equally thoughtful response. Some of you left comments asking quite good questions about Ubuntu; those also deserve a thoughtful response.
But this week is getting in the way. My "thoughtful" circuits are working overtime, and are pretty tapped out. The travel is just the cherry on top.
So thanks to everyone who's left a comment recently. I'll get to it, but it may take a few days. I have some posts queued for tomorrow, but the real thinking might take until the weekend.
