Look Away, This Entry's Purely For The External Memory Drive

The annual disclaimer: Is there anything worse than the vanity of bloggers who think anyone cares what they're reading? No, there isn't, but I'm going to indulge myself anyway. Therefore, skip this and forgive me. Every so often I do a post purely for personal record-keeping, and that's what this is.
