I am going to be taking a bit of a break of my blogging activities over the holiday break. I expect to return to full blogging on January 3rd. I am also, temporarily, disabiling comments and trackbacks. Being near Christmas, I have been receiving hundreds of spam comments and trackbacks to my site. It has become so bad that my email is being delayed by 2 to 3 hours from the volume alone. My overriding goal of the break, playing Civ IV!
