But the main reason I haven't updated is that I got a loose wire in the lead that connects my laptop to the power adaptor. Which means that I can't charge my laptop, and hence can't use it. So not only have I not been able to make new stuff, but things that I had sitting on my laptop ready to upload, I can't access. However I've just ordered a replacement adaptor and bits, which will hopefully arrive in the next few days, and then I can get back to posting stuff.
Thanks for your patience!
