These are listed in reverse chronological order.

I will start by saying I don’t ever want to read the word “cookie” again in my entire life. After our massive upgrade a few days ago, many Slopers went through login nightmares for reasons I’ve already explained at length, and the solution was for them to delete their browser cookies.
Close as Slopers are to my heart, I was tormented by the belief that There Had To Be a Better Way.

Greetings from the wee hours of the morning, where my three dogs are looking at me bug-eyed with puzzlement. We pulled another all-nighter and moved the entirety of Slope to a new server farm. We’re still working out a few kinks, but on the whole, so far, so good. Email me any problems you see.
OK, I am back where I belong! And since the morning action is so godawful boring, you’ll have to permit me one more vacation post, just for fun. Here is a brief video I made of my visit to the Green Elephant Sanctuary during my last day in Thailand.
