Anyway, as you can see, I'm online right now so it's working again, but that was stress I didn't need when I'm in the middle of delicate job negotiations. And the other annoying consequence is that I don't have time to contact all the people I was planning to contact this evening. Sorry especially to pseudomonas; I suck for letting you down two days in a row.
But anyway, let me just say globally, thank you so much for all your really helpful comments on my last (locked) post. You are absolutely wonderful friends and counsellors, and I continue to be grateful for how well my life goes with your collective support.
