I'm writing this from a school computer, and it may be the last you hear from me for a while.
Last night, my computer's power cord died on me, and at the moment I have no means to obtain a new one; money supplies are tight right now, so I'm going to be offline for an extended period. At best, my absence will last no more than a couple of weeks. There's a chance, however, that it may drag on for longer.
I'm not retiring, I'm not dead, and I will return to you all eventually. May fate bring me back swiftly!
Good-bye for now, but not forever.
