While I don't usually blog much about personal matters, I feel a need to explain the recent decline in my posting rate. It's simply this: my dad has been quite ill, and I've been focusing on family matters (and the mighty challenge of managing the "managed care" system) to the exclusion of all non-essential activities. Also, business has been cranking up very rapidly -- details to come in a future post -- so I've been focusing very tightly as we build quickly expand our capacity to handle the growing flow of projects. Blogging has -- understandably, I hope -- had to take a back seat.
Now that Dad's situation has stabilized, and business is shifting into the new normal, I'll get back to a regular blogging rhythm very soon. (Maybe even today!)
Thanks for your patience.
