It's been a very busy summer. Between buying a house, moving into said house, getting married, vacationing, and somehow managing to work, I haven't had any time for the website. But I'm finally caught up with (most) everything, so I thought it was time to get back to the blog.

I'm hoping it will give me a chance to say things that are too inconsequential for a full-on blog post, but that I still want people to hear. Up till now, I was using Sprokets' campfire room for that purpose. I'll probably keep doing that, but, you know, Twitter is cool, too.

I hope you find it useful/interesting.
