We're back!

This is just a quick post to let you know that even though the games have already started for this year and you haven't seen anything here (yet) we're still going on with this season. There are two main reasons we're running a bit behind this year:

  1. My own busy schedule; and
  2. Edward Snowden.
Allow me to explain.

This blog depends heavily on Twitter and Blogger APIs to upload and manage posts. Over the last year or so both Twitter and Google have added extra security requirements to those APIs; e.g., requiring secure connections and blocking ones that used older, less secure methods. Ultimately that's good, but it just means more code to rewrite.

So because of (2) that means extra work needed to happen, and because of (1) there wasn't time to do it. We're still working on addressing these, but starting today you should see some of the regular content you've come to expect, and over the next few days we should be coming back to our full, regular schedule, both here and on Twitter.

There might even be some new features. Stay tuned, and thanks for your patience.
