ITEM! WHY DOES SMF SEEM TO BE COMING UP IN THE AFTERNOONS?

To my loyal readers and friends out there, your blogmaster would like to clear up that you aren't going insane, and entries have been going up late for a while. That's due to a number of circumstances beyond my control that prevent me from finishing them in a timely fashion. I'm hoping to catch up and get ahead of myself soon to get us back on a regular posting schedule. But, fret not! While they may be late, updates will still arrive as planned. Stay tuned!
