Well, the best laid plans of mice and men, I guess.  I haven't updated for a while because I've been offline; my daughter managed to find some kind of vicious malware floating around, which worked a number on my windows load.  After way too much time farting around trying to root it out (some variation of Conficker, if my understanding was correct), I bit the bullet and wiped the OS and started clean.  Then I started having problems with my system overheating, so any kind of processor intensive work invariably led to a crash (make sure and clean your CPU heat sinks, kids!)  Between that and some work on the church website/ promo DVDs/outreaches, I haven't accomplished a whole lot.  Working into summer, it looks like church stuff is going to keep me fairly busy until mid to late July, but should drop off after that.

I have managed to get some of the character pics done for my second Technical Manual (Judges Guild Type C Cruiser), but even that is moving slowly at the moment.  Layout on the 8.5 x 11 version is finished (except for the character pics), so as soon as I get those done I'll be releasing it over at COTI, with the LBB format to follow at some later date (maybe).  I think I'll probably take a poll and see how much people care about the format and scrap one or the other to keep life simpler for me.
