Unexpected Hiatus

/ Uncategorized /

It’s been a touch over a month since I’ve posted to the blog and I can hardly believe how quickly that time flew by. The main reason for my unexpected hiatus was because I was putting in some overtime at work to help wrap up development for a major release of QuantumCMS, our in-house content management system. I even wrote a post about it on our corporate blog. I’m really happy with how everything turned out and I’m looking forward to getting feedback from our clients.

Now that’s the weather’s nice (I’m ignoring the fact that it snowed yesterday), I’ve been running more. I’m not a big runner, but it’s a great way to stay in shape and it generally makes me feel better about myself. It’s also helping me get through George R.R. Martin’s incredibly epic (and lengthy) A Dance With Dragons, because I listen to it on my ancient iPod Nano while I exercise.

And of course, I must also blame the NHL playoffs. I’m sure that I’ve noted in the past that I love hockey. Well, there’s no better time of the year for hockey fans that during the playoffs and the first round, which has been going for the last couple of weeks, is particularly exciting. It’s a good thing that I’ve been running, because I’ve also been spending an inordinate amount of time in front of the television lately.

This hiatus has also put me way behind on book reviews, which are the lifeblood of this blog. I’m hoping to catch up on reviews for my past reads, but it may take some time.

In other news, my brother and I have purchased tickets for Gen Con this summer. We still need a hotel and plane tickets, but hopefully that will happen very soon. I’ve never been to Gen Con, but we’re both big tabletop gamers so I think it will be a really fun experience.

Well, that’s it for now, my lunch break is over!
