Sorry for the disappearing act from Livejournal and the Cafe Arcane blog, but the last week or so has been a bit hectic. I’m still adjusting to recent shakeups at work and business matters outside the workplace have kept me off balance. On the plus side, WordPress 2.1 has been released and I’ll be preparing to upgrade my installation at This may be delayed because I’d like to take the opportunity to also build a new theme/appearance for my site. Also, I think it’s high time I build a new web design portfolio and give it a proper home. Finally, a conspiratorial nod to the folks in the BEF project; looking forward to the collective creativity and fun (unless life should eat my brain in its typically merciless manner).
