I’m currently working from home recovering from a fractured rib from a skateboarding accident. I do a style of skateboarding that is known as “vert” — going up and down ramps, that sort of thing. I, umm, kind of messed up a kick turn and took a rather nasty fall.

When I worked at Borland, Philippe Kahn had a saying that every time he went away from the company, sales went up. Hence, it is my belief that that my absence from Sunbelt will almost certainly relate to increased productivity and revenues.

There. That makes me feel better.

At any rate, Terminal Services is my best friend right now as I try and keep on top of what’s going on at the office.
