Sorry for the inactivity the last week and this one. A few times (last night, and last Thursday night) I tried to blog something, but couldn't get into Ideofact, no doubt because of the Denial of Service attacks that seem to be plaguing Hosting Matters. Other nights I just haven't much felt like writing anything. Part of it is work -- it's been fairly grueling the last few weeks -- and part of it is a sense that I've said certain things before, and don't much feel like repeating myself. I'll try to get back to more regular postings next week -- if Hosting Matters is down, I'll grit my teeth and deal with the lousy blogspot interface and post on paleo ideofact.

Short pop music reference -- over the weekend I picked up the first Lloyd Cole and the Commotions album, Rattlesnakes. I have it on vinyl somewhere (it was released way back in the dark ages of 1984). Cole wrote one of my favorite pop music lines in the song Four Flights Up, which probably loses something (but not too much) when simply read --

Must you tell me all your secrets when it's hard enough to love you knowing nothing?

In its own way, a perfect sentiment.
