Tech Breakdown Open Thread

Ordinarily, about this time, I’d have a fair amount of content up, but I’m afraid my computer is having some major difficulties this morning. All things being equal, I’m glad the breakdown began on a Saturday afternoon, rather than a Monday morning, but the crash isn’t any less frustrating.

We’re working on it — and when I say “we,” I really mean my tech-savvy wife — and hope to have it resolved soon. If the problem is resolved quickly, I’ll be back later today with some posts. If this problem is even more severe than I realize, I’ll hopefully be back in the morning.

Also, coincidentally, it turns out the Monthly‘s email server also had a breakdown. If you emailed me after Friday night, the message has apparently been permanently lost in the tubes. Please re-send.

As for my computer, let’s all keep our fingers crossed.
