Just a trial post, trying to see if I still remember how :)

It has been four months.  Four months!  Wow.  Well, maybe I can still do it.  We'll see.

Where I have I been?  Nowhere really.  Working hard on a few projects, enjoying the summer.  I have a lot to report, maybe I'll dribble it out over the next hours and days and weeks.  I have 2,523 RSS items queued up in SharpReader - stand by...

So I'm in my wiring closet, removing my XO IDSL router (story to follow), and I notice my firewall lights blinking furiously.  What?  There was a day - maybe a year ago - when I checked my blog stats daily.  Haven't checked for weeks.  But those lights; what's happening?

After a year and a half, suddenly Tyranny of Email is popular again, thanks to Whole Lot of Nothing and  Mark Frauenfelder at the incomparable Boing Boing.  It's been a long time since I had 51,000 hits in a day :)  I guess that kind of attention can wake you up.
