Wow, where the hell have I been?!

It’s two days shy of a month since I last posted, which is an eternity online. As is probably obvious, I’ve been really busy with work and all the other interesting things that life can throw at you. :)

Today, I finally got my Google Analytics invite. I can’t remember when I first applied for it, but it must have been several months ago.

I had to respectfully withdraw from the TTLB Ecosystem because the JavaScript required, which updates my status on it, was causing serious drag at load time for the blog. I no longer shall fight for my meat in that food chain, so the infuriating white screen while you wait for …
