Back from ...

April 20, 2008

I have not posted a blog entry for a long time ... but have been keeping up (more or less).  Why resurrect this blog.  Well, no particularly good reason .. just that at a recent project meeting (Streamline) it seemed that we were engaged in considerable activity to document current activity rather than make further progress.  I understand that ...
