No pictures right now. While I'm getting my new computer up and running, it isn't there yet. And while maybe I could post some pre-2012 pictures and caption those I'm not at all sure I can successfully upload pictures to Dreamwidth so don't want to deal with that. I'll have more pictures sometime later. Meanwhile, this was on my humor blog this week, despite the fiasco.
- Out On The Town, last week's big piece about the power failure that sure seemed like a lot of news then.
- In The Aftermath Of The Power Failure, I get all smug about words.
- Statistics Saturday: My Music Library (Not By Volume) yet strikingly true.
- What's Going On In The Phantom (Sundays)? February – May 2017 as one story passes and a new one starts.
- Quick Little Update As Mary Worth Changes *Everything*! as a panel had something key in it.
- Why I've Been Busy Smiling, and see if you don't too.
- Comic Strips I Just Don't Have Enough Time In My Life To Spend Any Of It Reading, one of my most curmudgeonly pieces yet when you consider next week I'm going to summarize the storyline in Gasoline Alley.
- On The New Computer, this week's big piece, which was not written on it.
Also, you know what? Let me post this here before the postscript. I wrote a heck of a big post for my mathematics blog and it gets into some real physics and diff eq and all that.

Trivia: In a Saturn V's Mode II abort the Apollo Service Module main engine lifts the Apollo capsule away from the second- and third-stages to get clear. Then on separation from the Service Module the Command Module rolls heads-up, to a full-life entry attitude. (The capsule's shape and mass configuration let it generate some lift.)
