I'm actually back...kind of, but back I am.
Firstly I must apologize for my abrupt disappearance—I surely could have, and should have, handled that better, mainly by letting you loyal readers know what was going on.
Suffice it to say that it was a combination of health issues (I don't like to complain about things, so just know that I have some serious health issues that ended up making blogging a bit more than I could handle. As many bloggers will tell you, it's a full-time job when you consider all the research time that goes into every post, the careful consideration of my opinion so that I don't just blow off at the mouth (well not that much) but at least make an attempt at posting a well-reasoned essay on whatever topic is at hand.
Anyway, first and foremost, two major changes are in store for this blog.
1) I will not be posting nearly as often as before.
2) (This one is the biggie)-- The primary focus of this blog will change from current events to technology, primarily electronics, and primarily designs and projects that I am working on.
I realize that this pretty much leaves most of you out in the cold, which is why I agonized and carefully considered all of the consequences of this change. Of course, I'll doubtless make the occasional post about something that's on my mind, etc., and you folks still have the freedom to suggest topics for posting a Forward Biased viewpoint, but I'll be posting much less often, depending on several factors that affect my ability to post, or sometimes to post with any remote semblance of higher brain functions, reason, not sounding like I've completely lost my mind, that sort of thing.
As soon as I can figure out how to do it, I'm going to divide this blog into two sections, both accessible by the address Forwardbiased.com, because I think that's the perfect name for an electronics blog.
Well, that's all for now. To all of you, I'm truly grateful for your readership, and I again apologize for just dropping off the face of the earth like I did.
