I've been absent here, sure, but for many good reasons
well, for two good reasons
1. Busy at work! Who would have guessed it? Anyways, yeah.
2. In my spare time, I have been fiddling with LJ's new pic-hosting dealie, and have actually created (and will be maintaining/updating) a new fun comm that most of you won't care about. it's maxpics and if you hate babies, stay the heck away.
