So, real life kind of snuck up and bit me in the butt the past few months. I apologize for the lengthy and unexplained absence — it must have been confusing for all four of my readers who aren’t related to me!

Because it’s a best effort delivery service. Get it? No? That’s cool, because I’m finally done with Networks forever, having done my final presentation on cloud computing today. Now if only I didn’t have 8 bajillion other final projects to work on, I could celebrate.

Hopefully I’ll be able to finish the writeup of my Tasker profiles (I’m also redoing my homescreens yet again because I got GoSMSPro and… it’s a long story, actually, and not an interesting one), but for the moment I’m smashed with work. 😦 Also:
