As such, I have been calling people, emailing people, doing paperwork, fixing bugs, setting up servers, setting up CRMs and more. It has been one of those weeks where […]

He was, as you may expect, rectum-shakingly funny, and we had a great night. It was fantastic to see him again, and we […]

Wow, busy week. Once again, the ‘ol blogging has taken a hit with all the stuff I have been busy with. We have been busy working on a bunch of materials for a week long LAMP training course. This takes one heck of a lot of preparation, and aside from this I have also had […]
