Just a quick post to wish everyone a merry Christmas and that I hope everyone is enjoying themselves this holiday season. I write this from my blackberry using the program Blackberry Meta Blog which allows posting to xmlrpc capable web platforms. Very handy but not the most efficient way ti do it. The reason why updates have been posted in the past week is that in my haste to leave for the holidays I forgot much of the tech equipment that I had set aside including blackberry chargers and thinkpad charger among them. Thus my blackberry has been my sole internet access for the last 4 days which has been hard. It is also a great tribute to the blackberry as I have not gone insane from internet withdrawl.
