There will be little or no internet access in the warm, cosy wooden buildings where CF will be relaxing, but some 'auto' posts have been set up.
If Blogger does its job, you'll be able to 'look back in anger' at some of CF's old posts, cynically recycled for your delectation.
Just behave yourselves, OK?
