So, in weeding my comments (bad spammers!) I noticed an old trackback from back in February. It linked back to Gifted Gear Reviews, where Stephen--the author--expressed his annoyance with my classification of his blog as "Dead" in my blog roll. It prompted a post. And there were posts that followed. So, I would like to say, "Sorry, for annoying you Stephen, but at least it prompted you to resume posting."
And if there are any more not-so-dead blogs out there, please let me know!
