Hey friends,
I'm off on vacation for a week starting tomorrow. Have patience, take an extra
beer and I'll be back in the game before you know it!
Of course there are still lots of good people around who can provide help and
answer on most topics even while I'm not present.
(I might read/write some emails while away, but don't count on it!)
