since July 20th and can't access my word processing files among other things that are missing, so I won't be posting releases here for a while. I have been able to register books on a tablet with coded notes to myself about what challenge links to add later on when the computer is fixed. And I have been releasing but not doing release notes. I'm guessing it will be a while after it is finally fixed before I get caught up.

X-posted to the Challenges I am active in.

 

I hope everything gets fixed soon!
