Being off at a large conference like NECC is rather insulating, becoming a substitute for the "real world". All the meetings and activities offered time to do little more than a quick scan of the RSS feeds each day. Forget any in depth reading.
Fortunately, the conference has flowed very nicely into a three-day weekend, offering extra time to catch up with life. Expect the usual ranting to resume shortly. You have been warned. :-)
