    Sorry to have been away so long, but other duties have kept me busy. I have been slowing reintegrating myself into forums, starting with MCSE world, and decided I should see how the lot of you here have been doing.

    My social networking haunts have mainly been twitter and Facebook as well as some blogging. Writing two new books (yeah, I'm a glutton for punishment), so that occupies most of my so-called free time.

    I manage to have lunch with Ryan every now and again, but we are both generally quite busy. On top of everything else, my son's wife and my grandson are staying with us while he's deployed, so I like to spend some time on the floor playing with little Landon (he'll be a year old in about 3 weeks).

    Just popping in to say "hi". Not sure where else to begin. Lots of unread posts have happened over the past several months. :blink

    I was in the same spot a month ago... too much to catch up on. CertForums is a victim of their own success; despite the great company here, it's a lot easier to "keep track" of the posts on MCSEWorld! :biggrin Every forum would be so lucky to have that problem!

    Welcome back, Trip!

    Hi Trip,

    Very nice to meet you!

    I have a nephew just coming up to 3 years old, they can be little bu**ers at that age! :twisted: They certainly keep you busy :)

    Thanks Michael and Pete, and greetings, Atiaran. The benefit of being a grandparent is you can do the "hand off" back to Mom when you're done playing with the little guy. :biggrin

    Getting older by the second and the number of books keep growing. Wish I could talk about it, but as soon as allowed, I'll pop out a few surprises.
