  1. Don't worry, I'm still alive.

    31 January 2016

    A friendly heads-up for my regular readers - I'm still alive and kicking. Not necessarily doing well, mind you - I've been sick twice in the last month (sick enough that I didn't have it in me to write anything, let alone study or do more than scan my e-mail for anything important happening and then go right back to bed), and I've been undergoing some fairly painful dental procedures at least once a month for the past few months, which takes a lot out of me. Additionally, I'm still studying for a couple of certifications for work, which is basically about …

  2. Where have I been lately?

    03 March 2015

    That's an interesting question.

    The short answer is, I've been busy. Very much so.

    The longer and more accurate answer is that work has been running me ragged lately and I've been trying to conserve my spoons as best I can, lest I run myself into the ground (again). I've been routinely putting in 60 and 70 hour weeks, often over six or seven days so I haven't really been getting a whole lot of downtime. So some hard choices had to be made. Go out for my birthday or keep it low key? Low key, because I'm on call …

  3. Breaking radio silence.

    08 January 2013

    So, it's been slightly over a week since 2013.ev began (and Happy New Year to everyone, by the bye), and I haven't posted so much as an opening evocation for the new year. Where, one or two of you may be asking, has the Doctor been? Did he dive into the time vortex on 21 December 2012 and get lost (again)?

    The answer is no, I didn't go traipsing around time and space, as much as I'd like to have done so. I took the last two weeks of the year off and tried my hardest to take a …

  4. Not dead, only busy.

    20 April 2012

    For everything going on right now, I've had surprisingly little time to work on much of it.

    In my last post I mentioned some of the things I've got going on right now, all of which have been keeping me from writing about other stuff. In the past week or so I've had a half-dozen things, all with roughly equal priority in the scheduler pop up and demand attention. I've been seeing to them as best I can, as often as I can, as efficiently as I can. Now that I've got a few of them mostly taken care of …

  5. Quickie: not a real post.

    21 June 2010

    Still alive.

    Very busy at work and at home.

    Just getting over being sick, but unfortunately Lyssa's caught it and is fighting it off.

    Behind on, well, everything, from watching Sir Derek Jacobi reading parts of Shakespeare's The Tempest with operatic interludes sung by a countertenor to going camping with some close friends.

    Was shocked and amazed by Snoop Dogg doing filk last night.

    Silliness and madness abound in equal proportion.

    Oh, and I have a backlog of pictures to post and things to write about. I'm going to try to clear half of those things this week, if I …
