And we’re back.

…it’s such an interesting and exciting time in my life and it would be a shame to not write about it.

Seriously, Daddy?
Seriously, Daddy? That is not a hat.

After quite a bit of shuffling around, the blog is back. Long story short, I started noticing some odd files showing up on my site a few months ago.  I deleted them, but then in late October I noticed they were back with a vengeance.  Nearly every page throughout the various sites I host had been affected by what I believe was an include file injection.  So the easiest option was to burn everything to the ground and start over again.

So here we are. Whether or not I can actually be bothered to update it is another story, but it’s such an interesting and exciting time in my life and it would be a shame to not write about it.  Our first baby – Colleen Alexis – was born on August 5th, and is an absolute joy for both of us.  She is healthy and happy – we couldn’t ask for anything more.

So with Christmas vacation approaching, I hope to be able to fix up the site a little (the current template leaves much to be desired) and start updating more regularly than I have over the past couple of years.  Social networking tools such as Facebook and Twitter have made it so easy to shoot off quick thoughts and opinions without having to sit down and really develop them into a decent blog post.  Which is sometimes nice, but at the same time, there’s value in actually taking that time to really “unpack” those thoughts and get them down on paper.  Er… screen.  Um… you get the idea.

Hopefully there will be more to come soon.
