Starting today, I’m on vacation until August 26th. My family and I will be traveling west to visit family in Seattle.

Setting aside work is difficult for me – this will be my first real vacation in years that’s not also a work conference or something – but we don’t live to work, right? We work so that we can live.

Anyway, in the mean time the I’m obviously not going to be updating the blog. There will be regular updates from guest contributors and SAB’s regulars in the “This and That” column on the front page. And I’ll probably be chiming in with comments now and then.

Feel free to talk among yourselves in the mean time.
