My Posting Issues

Apologies, everyone,  for slow (and sometimes no) responses.  Internet Explorer seems to delight in waiting til I've composed a lengthy response to someone and then it throws me offline and it trashcans what I was writing.

Thus, several of you have gotten brief responses to private messages and in some cases no response, because I've lost my content once or twice and frustration causes me to simply close the cover of the netbook and resign myself to trying again later.

Updates are probably required, so I'll check on that in the next day or two, but it's busy times around here, prepping the antique house for the Winter weather that'll hit Chicago on about five minutes' notice.  I should be back up to speed by Sunday, though.  Again, not ignoring anyone, just unable to function efficiently at the moment, technologically speaking.
