BLOG ADMINISTRIVIA NOTE
For whatever reason - being trendy is my guess, though control-freakishness or co-worker stupidity with spam and viruses is not to be excluded - my place of work has blocked all the mainstream, major, email sites. So if you send something to firstname.lastname@example.org
during normal business hours I am now unlikely to see it until late evening. Thus, email responses from me ( and I try to respond to everyone in a timely fashion, though, admittedly, I do not always succeed) are now subject to a minimum 24 hour delay.
If anyone knows of a reliable but obscure email service that flies under most IT department radar (I know they have blocked only specific sites) I'm open to suggestion for an alternative.
