I Live!

Things should be picking back up around here soon. A few quick notes:

  • I have internet again, after a couple weeks without. The blizzard that hit the East Coast caused the installation to be canceled. TWICE. Two weeks in the new house with no cable or internet. Thank god for Xbox and DVDs.
  • I'm moved in and as settled as possible in my new temporary house. Being out of the hotel is great, but there's still no place like home.They're saying it will be 3 months until I get back to my house, but it could be as long as 6. 
  • While I was without internet, my domain expired. Rufusopus.com is back up and running.
  • Orders placed in the last month will be processed some time this week. Eventually.
  • Courses: God DAMN, it's good to be back online. I still have some shit to get off my old HD, I'm installing it as a SLAVE on my new computer this weekend (or sooner), but I'm still going to be slow publishing stuff to the courses. 
  • A book may be published officially and everything some time in the next year or so. Woohoo!
  • Expect fewer posts here going forward. The fire gave me some much-needed time to assess my life. I was spending way too much time online, and way too little taking care of my real life. I'm a geek, it happens. Nevertheless, I'm a magician with the primary responsibility of being a good steward of the things and people entrusted to my care. I've been tempered by the flame, and come through a lot stronger, leaner, thinner, and in some ways, meaner. A lot of the crap that isn't necessary just vanished in stinking clouds of smoke. Literally and figuratively.
