Happy New Year!
Wow, 2012

I'm tempted to say a lot about 2011, but it's late, and I'm ... well ... let's just say I was at a friend's house and we celebrated with a little wine tasting.  So maybe I'll just say best wishes to all of you for an amazing 2012.  We can't change the past, but we can make the future whatever we want it to be.  Choose wisely!

Hi there!  I'm still in my self-imposed exile from blogging, but I thought I'd poke my head out for a second and say "hi"...  I haven't forgotten you.  My deeply nested yak shaving as I reconfigure my blogging regime continues, and I must tell you many other things have interfered with my recovery.  Not least of which, is: I'm moving!  This is the last post I will ever make from my old house, in which I have lived for ten years.  It's kind of sad, and kind of exciting, and kind of a lot of work.

Ah, the life at sea ... actually it's just a little lake.  But I'm looking forward to living on it :)

I live in Westlake Village, and there is a Westlake Lake, and it has an island, and as of tomorrow I will be living on it.  Among all the things I'm moving is my 11-year-old-PC-turned-into-a-webserver, on which this blog is hosted.  So there will be a disruption in the force, and if all goes well I'll be back on the air in a day or two.  Stay tuned, I will keep you posted, assuming I make it there :)

Well I'm moved.  And I now have FIOS!  And I like it; it's seriously faster than the DSL I had before.  And after two days of unboxing and messing around and running cables and configuring routers and ... whew, my servers are back up, and the bits you are reading right now came from deep inside a closet of my new house.  Yay.

my new blogstation

Also yay: the Tivo HD is up and online via FIOS without any problems.  And the AppleTV is up and running too, with HD movies now streaming in realtime.  All good.

I shall have more to say "soon" - assuming I ever get back to blogging, that is - please stay tuned...
