Weekend of not blogging

Heads down on a couple of client projects, plus a home project to completely disassemble a Compaq Armada M700 in order to resolder the power connector, which is conveniently located on the underside of the motherboard where you can’t get at it without at least 45 minutes of disassembly. This is just one of the reasons that I keep an electrical engineer around the house — my degree in systems design engineering qualifies me to correctly identify a soldering gun, but not actually do anything with it. However, since I’m the software guru of the household, I’ll be installing SQL Server later this week as payback.

I also went out yesterday for my first sail of the season with my friend Ingrid, who owns a 25′ C&C and is completely tolerant of my inability to learn much about sailing except how not to fall off the boat. She started a blog several months ago on my urging, and is now at the “so what now?” stage of business blogging. We talked about a number of issues with regards to getting customers — especially somewhat technology-challenged ones — to read her blog, and it’s given me some great ideas for topics for BlogHerNorth when we get it kicked off.

Back to work…
