I've received several email messages expressing concern for my welfare.
Thank you all for your thoughts; I am perfectly fine. I realized that
my silence, quite conspicuous due to my typical volume, might concern
some, but I did post last Tuesday afternoon, so I presumed that anyone
noticing my absence would believe (correctly) that I am busy and
distracted by other things than the Microsoft issue. I apologize for
any concern I might have caused by my unexplained disappearance, and I
greatly appreciate the concern and good wishes. I should have realized
that, considering how much of a loud-mouth I've been, it was wrong of me
to just disappear like that.
Thanks for your time. Hope it helps.
