Long Time no Break

My last break from posting was some ten months ago, and it’s time for another one. Why? Because posting has been a habit of mine for the past two years or more (I started quite exactly three years ago, with a rapidly rising posting frequency). Most habits need to be given a rest every now and then.

That said, I will keep checking for comments, free pending comments from the filter, and take care of stuff that isn’t in line with these simple-enough rules.

Merci de votre fidélité, et à la prochaine.
