Personal situation and the blog

Hi all.

Do not worry - everything is very much all right with me.

In fact, I am making more money than ever before, and am getting phone calls - weekly - almost begging me to consider a new position.

This is due to me being a consultant in a specific computer system, and (due to the bad economy - hooray?) many Indian guys who charge less than a third of what an American citizen charges went home (they lost their H1B "work" visa).

So now there is a bona fide shortage in my particlar skillset - yes, now, during this terrible "shock doctrine" economy, where TARP ("tax assistance for rich people") is used to destroy American manufacturing and the middle class while giving more of middle class wealth to Wall Street / Goldman Sachs players...

Consequently, I am more busy in my professional life than ever before (the traffic situation with driving for two hours daily does not help).

On top of that there is the personal life with my (somewhat demanding) girlfriend...

Do not worry - I will continue the blog, I have taken a break before.

The outrage of the media lies about the Ossetia war brought me back from the cold - (un)fortunately during the Obama era, it does not look like there will be less outrages or any change in policies that matter to prevent me from blogging.

As a last thing, I want to apologize for, what is, in effect, my laziness re: my blog.

Thanks, I am super busy with work now and when I get home I am tired (8-9 hour work day + 2+ hours in traffic will do that for yah).

I'll try to rant some more on the blog, but I am down to about 100-150 hits per day.
