People who know me know I generally have, euh, confrontational relationships with banks, at best. My general view is that banks are evil, that they will suck the life-blood out of you if they can and the world would be a much better place without them. I believe that instead of banks, we should have friendly “Buildings & Loans” type establishments and they should all be run by George Bailey.

I have been, to put it mildly, very busy, with work mostly, to the point that I have given up on making any plans beyond trying to find enough time to eat and sleep.
So, because my life these last few months has been mostly comprised of work, work, work, eat, sleep, bills, bills, bills, work, work but thought I should at least give some kind of news, else people think I was dead or something, here is a quick list of stuff I feel like sharing at the moment.
