Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone.

Taking a break from blogging… will be back probably by 2007.

The condo I’m staying suffered a power shortage this morning. I was frustrated initially as I have some deadlines to meet and needed the PC desperately (reminded me that I should get a laptop).
