Quico says: Sorry for the hiatus everyone: Juan Cristobal and I are busy working on the soon-to-be-traditional Year in Review Post. We're having to go back over everything we've written all year, and as you can imagine, it's pretty time consuming.
I hope you'll agree it's worth it. Among other things, it'll help create a kind of usable, chronological Table of Contents to our now sprawling archive.
For now, you can amuse yourself looking back on the 2007 Year in Review post: this year's will be formatted pretty much the same way.
