Yes, I'm blogging again! Somewhere around the beginning of August I wiped my laptop clean and didn't re-install my blog reading software until recently so I've been blissfully ignorant of all the last happenings in the tech+cool stuff+friends+personal finance world. But not any more. I'm back on the bandwagon and here to prove that blogging is not a fad.

The other major blogging blocker has been work. There's just been so much of it lately. One of the major work items has been managing the development of an application that is going to be shown at the Microsoft Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in LA tomorrow during the Jim Allchin keynote. While I had the opportunity to spend my weekend in LA backstage getting everything ready I declined and will instead be watching the keynotes from my couch (thanks to Charlie who is backstage getting everything ready).

Really there were three reasons why I'm not going to be down there for the excitement. Firstly, The Standard was booked (I could stop here). Secondly, I wanted to go hiking this weekend and thirdly, if things go badly tomorrow, I want to be very far away :). So watch tomorrow's keynote. I lot of work went into that seven minute segment. Anyhow, I'll blog more about it tomorrow once it's public.

And the other major work item, is shipping Windows Vista...
