Okay, I learned my lesson: No posts saying something should be coming soon. It tempts fate.
My laptop died a few days ago, and it's going to be at least a week before it's fixed. This laptop has all my Alpha documents, especially the ones in progress. My backups are a few weeks old, so it will probably be faster to wait for the repair than to try and recreate everything. (Sadly enough, that probably still counts as "soon" when you consider how often I post new chapters.)
