Back up, as distinct from backup.

Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen.

My service provider had some difficulty yesterday and I had forgotten to reinstall ez-ipupdate after upgrading the box on which norman.walsh.name runs. So when my ISP came back and DHCP gave me a new IP address, you were none the wiser.

Practical upshot: if you tried to get here in the last 24 hours or so, you probably didn't.

Welcome back!
