Every time I think we're good to go again... POW! Straight back down the crapper. I think (and hope) that Buttonhole shall be fully running on all four cylinders again from now on. I do not want to speak too soon though. The last few times I've said or thought that, it wasn't to be.
Special K has fixed up all (or very close to all) our tech problems, so that side of things should be cool. The Buttonhole Forums look a bit off at the moment, but they're still working, which is the main thing.
My health seems to be much better too -- at last! I'd been really sick and then I thought I was improving, only to get worse. Then I thought I was improving again...only to get much worse. Man, that past week or so (I really lost track of time), I was totally f*#ked. My symptoms were not the same ones I usually have either; I was starting to get pretty concerned for a while there. I've recently started taking a new kind of medication, so at first I thought maybe I was having a bad reaction to that. But that didn't wind up being the cause (thankfully, especially since it costs a fortune). They (that is, my Doctors - yeah, plural) did some more tests on me to try and figure it out. We still don't really know what was happening, though not all the results are back yet.
Anyway, a few days ago I started feeling a bit better. I kept improving each day and right now I'm feeling the best I have in ages. I honestly don't remember the last time I felt this good. I don't know if it will stay that way for long, but I damn sure hope it does. In any case, I will certainly make the most of it, by setting my geeky heart to 11 and rocking on at the mighty Buttonhole!
Unlucky timing is a specialty of mine. Buttonhole's Assistant Editor, Australian Ninja, has been tied up (not literally, as far as I know anyway) and unable to get to old Sammy's Buttonhole cave so that I can help him master our unique Content Management System. So, he couldn't fill in for me while I was out of commission, but (if required) in the future we're hoping he will be able to do that.
Hopefully you noticed that, after our latest quiet spell, a bunch of new articles have been posted. I believe you'll find that they're all good 'uns too. Plenty more where those came from, IF everything continues to roll nicely.
So, please cross your fingers, put the four leaf clover in your pocket, do the hokey pokey and turn yourself around... or whatever it is that's supposed to bring good fortune.
Thanks again, Buttonholers, for sticking with us. We ought to be cooking with gas now, baby!
