Dear readers, my apologies. Two blog posts have gone up on the site in the last two weeks, and neither has been sent by email until now.
The reason is that I realized I had gotten a ton of fake/spam signups, and I needed to stop them and purge the fakes before I sent more emails, or risk getting marked as a spammer by Google et al.
Anyway, this post is mostly pictures, so I'm just going to give the intro and a few highlights and let you click through to see the rest!
