Enforced absence

Just to say I have been unavoidably offline for the past week, as my computer broke down. Since it was about 8 years old, not too surprising. I now have a new one, which takes up about half the space, is at least 20 times as powerful, and cost half as much, even without adjusting for inflation. So the world may be going to the dogs, but I must admit some things are getting better.

Thanks for all the many comments on my post 'We need a word'. I quite like the suggestion of 'patrophobia', but may the fittest word survive!
