First, I found out yesterday that my e-mail filter is blocking some comments to my posts. No pattern to it that I can find, other than it has only blocked legitimate replies from readers, and has yet to block a spammer. Thanks for your comments, and sorry that they haven't been getting posted or responded to.
And second, after completing a two month long project that was severly limiting my hobby time, and getting a weekend free to be creative, I was hit by another, even more oppressive thing to deal with, so I won't be posting (or playing, building, etc), for the next few weeks.
Next time around, I'm going to have to rethink how to do this whole "life" thing.
