Please stand by. Ok, don't stand by, go plant something ;-). Sorry folks, I've tried to post two articles that have disappeared into the ether. The hard drive on my desk top died and the laptop is giving me fits too. I've even got baby goat pictures to show you, but I can't get them up at the moment.
Cuteness coming as soon as the technical limitations are lifted!
I was missing you! (I check your blog almost every day to see if there's anything new) Luckily, my copy of A Nation of Farmers arrived yesterday, but I will probably be finished reading it tonight or tomorrow. I've already read your other 2, and am waiting patiently (or not so patiently) for the next one!
If your hard drive is a disc (not an SSD) you might could use Steve Gibson's SpinRite utility (Google grc).
