...and actually gets an answer!
Good lord, has it really been so long since I've posted anything here that I still have the CHRISTMAS background up? I guess it has...and yes, I'll be doing something about that just as soon as I've finished typing this.
Sorry about that folks, but it's been an intense few months. In a good way: this time last year, there were plenty of posts on this blog, more than a few of which had to do with a need for employment and general career direction. The truth of the matter is that I've not been here because I've been there: between working and studying for my first networking certifications, free time has been at an absolute premium. It's been a great start - well, a lot more than a start by this point - but now it's time for phase two, which absolutely includes blowing the dust off this here blog, airing out that mothball smell from it, and spending at least a few minutes hanging out here on a more regular basis.
I'll probably be changing up the format of the blog a little bit as I reboot it: expect more short pieces and less essays, for one thing. I'll also be integrating more with Facebook and (god help me) Twitter to, you know, actually promote this place a bit. If I sound like I've got an actual plan for all of this for once, that's because I do. But first, a little spring cleaning: goodbye dust, mothballs, Christmas backgrounds, and emptiness.
Be back in a few. Thanks for your patience.
