I have been beta reading several projects, but that's not a great excuse.
I could talk about the great Attic Raccoon Battle of '09/'10 that seems to have finally come to an end (more on that later), random other life ridiculousness, being sick, busy, etc.
But I'm not big on excuses either.
So, thanks for your patience. There will be updates about raccoons, writing, and being one's own evil twin.
