Glad you and Don are okay/alive!

Came into the office today to learn that our IT department decided to block network access to several of our team's necessary web applications (And Facebook!  :argh!: ).

Should get my final draft approved for the interesting tech I mentioned a few weeks ago today.  Though it likely won't be published for weeks, as soon as its OK'd, I'll post an abridged version of it here.
