Disaster Brings Opportunity

As you may know, yesterday some hackers broke into Scully's blog, Skywritings, and trashed the place. She was pretty pissed off and, with the help of some people who know a hell of a lot more about computers than I do, she managed to salvage her writing. But she thought about it some and realized that rather than trying to rebuild her blog and get back to where she was, this is a good opportunity to go off in a new direction.

And so she shall.

I am going to miss her blog. I really didn't pay much attention to blogs, other than a few heavy political ones, until she told me about her blog. I never thought I could do one, but then after reading her blog some and looking at other blogs she linked to and so on and so forth, I decided to give it a whirl. So if any of you are looking for someone to blame for my stomping around this little portion of the digital universe, you can blame Scully for that (but only out of my earshot).

I imagine that she is going to keep writing, I can't see her not putting fingers to keyboard (gads, that sucks compared to "pen to paper"), and I hope to be able to read it sometime. Her talent is large and it should not be hidden, but that is her call. She's got a lot to say and it's worth reading.

Tailwinds always, Scully.

I miss her already; her blog has been one of my first reads in the morning for over a year now.

Bobg,

Me, too. I think a lot of folks will have withdrawl pangs. Heck, if it wasn't for her blog, I'd not have found yours.

Bobg - ebmisfit has my email addy as well. . as she and I used to fly out of the same airport and have been acquainted in that respect for about 7 years. . .

Steph - thank you. . that was the nicest thing you have ever said about me. . and over time you've said some nice things. . you know me. . and not just my words. . and paint a picture of me from that, which is refreshing.
