Just as well Bolty is back, because I’m out of here until mid-August.

(Not entirely; there’ll be occasional posts meantime, and the column never sleeps.)

(Admin note, July 31, 2007: sorry folks, forgot I had set comments to close after five days. Since you all (well, most of you all) seemed to be having such fun, I’ve extended the comment expiration to ten days. Andrea Harris, Administrator.)
