I am in the process of swapping from Windows to a Linux system. I have trained myself on all aspects of posting via that platform, but am way behind the curve on Linux. It should improve with time.

Update on Blogoshpere's Most Wanted|
OK, concerning Fabian Cayetano Urrea, long featured in my sidebar....
I see that Mr. Urrea, featured in my Blogosphere's Most Wanted sidebar for so long, had been captured. I'll research the status, and then remove it... when I get some time.
Been gone a while, so long that I forgot all of my passwords, etc.|
Interestingly enough, at least to me, is that I have been getting a fairly constant, if diminishing, rate of hits during the entire hiatus. Initially 20-30 hits per day, gradually falling until now averaging 14-20 hits per day. And my last post was November 9, 2006! Must be people cycling through the 'next blog' option :)
Anyway, I'll have more to say shortly.

Vote Early, and Vote.... well, Early
Like Glenn, I also voted early today. I overheard a precinct worker tell another voter that the voting had been relatively heavy, although he made no comparisons to a presidential election. This being a Friday, and before what I expected would be a noon rush, it was at least as crowded as during the August primary on a Saturday morning. Make of that what you will. One striking difference, to me, between the primary and today... during the primary there were a LOT of candidates and/or their reps lining the route to the polling station, today there were none. A Friday-Saturday difference? Hot summer as opposed to a rather cool, damp fall day? I don't know.
Poll workers were friendly and chatty, until you reached the voting machines themselves, where they became earnest, efficient and very business-like. Notices were posted in the waiting areas explaining that the poll workers would not explain the meanings of the proposed state constitutional amendments, so please do not ask.
I will admit that I cast a pair of votes for Democrats. Unlike Glenn, I won't keep you guessing... neither of those votes went to Harold Ford, Jr.
