Hey, I was away on a little vacation before our September busy season starts. I was in Hawaii and it was terrific. I swam with a whale shark, took my first surf lessons, hung out with Lisa's family and ate a lot of great food. I did work a few days at the start, and checked a lot of email on the iPhone, which got terrific 3G across both Oahu and Maui, much better than I get in SF. I also got some quality time in with a new waterproof camera and I did not lose it scrambling away from killer waves or imaginary sharks (for once). I also got some quality time in with the Kindle and thanks to its unique properties, finished about 1000 pages of book at blog reading speeds. More on those later. For now, I'll just say it's nice to be home.
