I'm a couple days late posting the latest letter. I apologize for this. Some strange piece of malware got past my anti-virus protection. I had been trying to do system restores and searches of the registry to find the problem file, but Monday it managed to lock up my system completely. I'm not an IT professional so I had to take the computer to a specialist and wait for them to get the problem fixed.
Fortunately, I don't keep my only copy of any story on this computer so nothing was lost except time.
