Mike M explains why we missed a week or so of "Cover to Cover"... when the magic smoke escapes from computer hardware, it's well beyond mostly dead. So thank you to everyone who's donated this year... your donations helped get the studio back online in record time.

In other news, Terry Pratchett is forging his own sword in preparation for his knighthood. How cool is that?
