I was asked to post a quick note because people are worrying.
I haven't been posting because I haven't been able to get internet access in my apartment. I'm able to sneak quick looks at email at work and get to an Internet Cafe a couple of times a week after work. Can't work offline on blog entries and then upload them to the internet because my laptop doesn't have access to the internet like it did in the hotel room. And even though it's not as bad as in the hotel room, It's still expensive to access the internet by the minute. Also I have to struggle with a German_language keyboard ("Y" and "Z" keys are reversed; punctuation is a real hunt and search operation.)
Don't know when I'll get internet access so posts will be few and far-between till then. I promise to post as soon as I get it but it may be a while yet.
