A Word of Explanation
Regular readers of this blog will have noted that I have been largely absent for the past month. There was and is a good reason.
Blogging, at least for me, is a time consuming activity. For the past few years I’ve had a fairly comfortable gig that allowed me to blog in a way that did not interfere with my work… or sometimes work in a way that did not interfere with my blogging.
Last month I accepted a promotion. With that promotion came additional responsibility (the bastards!) along with the extra money. And then there is always the process of feeling your way around a new organization, getting comfortable, etc. When topped off with the responsibilities associated with being the father of three kids my blogging time dropped to near zero.
I can’t thank my collaborators on this blog enough for providing a regular stream of posts during my absence, proving once again that the graveyards are full of indispensable men.
I hope to be back in a significant way in a month or so.
