As mentioned, we are starting to get back on track with the blog and starting to get more regular with our posts. You might see a little more diversity in the posts. I’ve started looking a lot more at online security and have started contributing to the company blog for Dyrand Systems Inc.¬? If things go really well, I may even get to start watching my net-girlfriend again, Maria Sandstone - Now get back to work!
