I am still alive.
I am glad to see that the forum is as active as ever. In case anyone missed me and wondered what I have been up to, I decided to start my own consulting company a little over two years ago and I have three big customers which translates to the equivalent of two full time jobs. To make matters more interesting, at around the same time I started teaching undergraduate computer science courses online (job #3). And if that wasn't enough, I have been working on my PhD the whole time and am working on my last class at the moment.
Because of all these distractions, I have severely neglected my bad case of OCCD, but Gary (TNRabbit) has kept me on life support by keeping me up to date on the ravages that this disease has brought upon him... luckyyyyy...
Speaking of TNRabbit, he is the only reason I drag myself back to the forum about once or twice a year when he very sneakily PMs me through the forum (even though he knows my phone number and email address) to tell me that he is having another get-together. I plan on being there once again because I have not yet eaten enough of TNRabbit's food to account for storage fees for two ginormous subwoofers - I am messing with you, but I will be there hoping to meet as many forum members as possible since it doesn't look like I would be able to make it to Carverfest anytime soon.
