Aye! Guilty as charged...
In my defence: the biggest economic crash in history means I'm flat out trying to keep my employers interested in my services and my kids in a good school...
(still waiting for the feedback from EMC on exactly why does our SPA execute I/O at half the speed of SPB...)
Besides I'm catching up with my photography, fishing and garden and all the free time is taken up! (why are days getting shorter?)

Amazing. I never got the point of Twitter, and quite frankly the notion of writing out what I'm doing just for the fun of it strikes me as a bit off the charts. I already run a diary, but that's for work and not exactly for public consumption. Still: all the power to those who make sense of it or find it useful. I'll just skip it.
