My reasons for not posting here are pretty simple. Raising a 2 and 4 year old while taking on a new role as CIO at work left me with no free time. Lots of things have fallen by the wayside over the last year and change, including this site. It didn’t help that the server the site runs on was hacked twice. The first time it happened last fall I cleaned things up a few weeks of down time. The second time it happened, this winter, I gave up, at least for a good long spell. I’ll give it another try now. The kids are a year older and a little more self sufficient, plus I have a new toy to play with. We’ll see how it goes.
