Mea culpa!

I have been a very slack mod, and I apologize. In my defense when I wasn't exhausted and could get on the computer (darn teenagers), I couldn't get on to LJ. That elderly Georgian lady who cut up the Internet for scrap metal did a great job, eh*?

So, to give you the good news: one of our moderators is now world-famous. Go here and find out why. That's the "ad" that started it all.
ETA Now with bonus "video"!!

Bidding is over and works are coming in. If you'd like to share your work, we'll have a post up soon for that.

Recovery, despite yesterday's earthquakes in both QLD and NZ, is going along well. For example, the University of Canterbury is doing really well, with students studying on campus in makeshift buildings, in Adelaide, and online (that's my job but not for them). As a matter of fact, their emergency procedures are being held up as a model for all businesses, not just universities (I got trained as a fire warden this week -- go me).

We're sick of rain, with both Melbourne and Sydney suffering from massive record-breaking rainfalls this past week. After 10 years of drought, this is playing havoc on our health, my doctor told me so.

And now, I must leave you again my pretties, for I must meet eldest who is housesitting for a colleague and hates it. Also, we're seeing Terry Pratchett tonight -- woohoo!


*There really was an elderly woman who cut into some fibre-optic cables to sell for scrap metal and cut off the Internet in Chechnya and Georgia.
