...I'm back, mostly. Still some tweaking on the new (to me) machine, but this is the first post directly from Upper Left World Headquarters in a bit. A tip of the hat to Dan and his crew at Seattle Laptop, who snagged the essential data from the old ThinkPad and set me up with an upgraded replacement for less than the likely cost of repairs.
Seattle Laptop was one of the first, and has remained one of the most consistent, local sponsors of progressive talk radio on AM 1090, so they belong on your preferred provider list if you're a local lefty in need of a laptop, peripherals or repairs. Take it from a satisfied customer.
If you're just in need of inspiration, check out Dan's blog, Republicans Are A Disease.
Meanwhile, a tweak or two and I'll be ready to catch up around here. Thanks for hanging in there.
