Today marks a first for me - both as far as this site is concerned
and as far as my personal life is concerned: In a few hours, I'll
leave for a 6 week holiday. I've never been on a holiday for so
long (the longest was 4 weeks if memory serves right), and you can
imagine what missing a whole week due to the flu meant to an already
overbooked calendar - I was working my butt off this week and barely
managed to pack my bags (planning what to do will have to come in
the airplane and once we get there).
I think I set up everything so that I'll have Internet, but at
best I'll be posting some stuff to the news forum. Of course you're
all invited to participate as well - many eyes see more things and
I was bound to miss certain things in recent weeks as the things
were getting more and more hectic as the date of my holiday approached.
