Hey Team,

Still a lot going on over here and there are probably quite a few explanations in order. First things first: My bus pass expired! Never thought I’d have mixed feelings about this one. I’m SUPER excited that I don’t feel obligated to take the bus everywhere anymore and if I get my way (unlikely) then I’ll never have to ride a greyhound ever again! But on the other hand, the Amtrekker account is at low ebb and I don’t exactly know how I’m going to globetrot to my next destination.

Further more, I’m not even sure what my next destination is. As usual Plan A has fallen through leaving me to rack my brain trying to remember if I ever had a Plan B (probably not). I’ve been bouncing around California for the last couple weeks hating that I can’t go home when I’m so close and trying to figure out if I have time to trek across the country before I would like to be back in CA at the end of the month for moonshine with Dr. Tiki and one of my best friend’s 30th birthday party (probably not).

You’d think all this would leave me with more than enough time to catch up with everything relating to the site. I know what you’re thinking:

“Ah, so you HAVE heard my screams of anguish regarding the recent dearth of updates!”

Short answer: Yes. But I’m back in the game now and as focused as I’ve ever been so expect a return to the good old days because…

Thanks to a VERY generous donation from Karl Blessinger, Charley is back in action and ready to kick some 1’s and 0’s! So, not only do I no longer have to spend my time sitting on a bus without electricity with which to power through the updates (yeah, bad pun…if you were cool you’d just let it slide and not mention it) but my bestest friend and constant companion can once more handle anything life throws at him!

All right, Team, let’s make this happen!

I’m done.

Brett.
