Back in town, back to work.

Hey, all – I just got back to Washington, DC to discover great heaping piles of things waiting for my attention. I'll be slogging through emails and the to-do list tomorrow, so if you're waiting on something from me, look for it then.

Let's see, what all is new and notable? On the geek front, the return of scheduled startup and shutdown times has me more excited than anything else in Mac OS X 10.3 Panther (whew, what a mouthful). I've been mourning the ability to set a wakeup time and macro to check my email, load the morning news, and start playing music ever since I abandoned Mac OS 9. I can't wait until September.

On the arts front, Neil Gaiman has penned a very touching and personal essay on Dave McKean which is quite nice. I hope I manage to warrant an essay like that from someone someday. Hopefully before I have been planted six feet under.

On the personal front, Chicago was amazing. Apologies to those I didn't manage to see this time around. I will do my damnedest to rectify that very soon, which may be sooner than you'd expect.

Oh, there are lots of things to discuss and post about and whatnot, but right now I'm dog tired and have every inclination to turn in early. I'll post more details soon, just as soon as I've slept off that drive and have time to think. Stay tuned.
