After a month of disconnection, I quietly re-opened comments last night to see if the comment spam would start up where it had left off. Checked in the morning: nothing. Checked in the afternoon: nothing. Checked again after supper: still nothing. So I think the storm has passed. (I was getting 3,000 - 4,000 spam comments every day when I turned commenting off.)
Thanks for your patience, and glad to let the conversation resume!
So last night I decide to back up my computer and am using two separate external hard drives to do so - one is running TimeMachine for my laptop, one is backing up my photo library in another way. Redundancy makes me happy. In doing this, I forget about the fact that once I have cables plugged in two of my USB ports, my SD card reader will be too bulky to fit into the third USB port. And I am too sleepy after a long day to think of any of the several work-arounds that seem obvious to me this morning. A long way of saying that back-ups completed, here's last night's apple sketch! (Public service announcement - are you backed up? Just copy a few key files to someplace else right now, even if you are going to back things up later...)
