Hello, friends! It’s been a while, for various reasons. Work picked up like a sirocco, and then my years-long streak of not catching Covid was cruelly broken, knocking me out for a couple of weeks. I’m doing my best to take it easy so my hit points and mana can refill properly, but unfortunately I’m also playing catch-up on an Olympus Mons-sized pile of stuff. That means this will be a correspondingly chonky newsletter, so gird your loins. Maybe grab a snack first.
