No, I wasn't on vacation for a month - I just have been too lazy since I got back to post - or too busy. Depends on who you ask, but bottom line, I am still alive, and will resume posting regularly hopefully pretty soon. Obviously I have to start posting… more »

I was listening to session 12 of BloggerCon IV (Video Blogging) the other day, and someone mentioned the term "Voltroning Up." I don't know who. Maybe Dave can answer that one. Being a child of the '80s, I liked the term. If you're not familiar, Voltron… more »
