In December, one of my HDDs decided to go all end-of-life on me. Turns out, it's kind of a time-consuming pain in the dick to migrate an intact Windows 7 installation from one set of drives to a new set of drives. In the meantime, I was restricted to using my laptop, which is not and never was a gaming machine and didn't even have a recent copy of my build notes on it.
So yeah, there have been setbacks. Barring any further technical problems, the Wolfhound post will come in February, and the build post that I was planning to deliver in December will come this month (sooner than later?).
