If only it were that easy!

(See blog subject in case it’s not clear what I’m talking about…)

One of my goals for this blog was to make sure I kept to my schedule of at least two blog posts per month. Normally May would be an exciting month as I would be attending the ASUG Annual Conference which is co-located with the SAPPHIRE event down in Orlando. In fact I think this is the first year out of the past three (or four?) that I have missed it. Conferences always seem to provide a lot of inspiration for posting. However, for a variety of reasons I am not attending the event this year. That means plenty of time left for other stuff, yes?

As it turns out, the last few months (actually some of the development started well over a year ago) I have been busy working on the next iteration of BOB. We’re coming up on our tenth anniversary as a community, and I wanted to spiff things up a bit. Some of the changes will be visible, some are primarily for tuning or optimization, and some are intended to make things more efficient for our fine moderator team. But the point is, there is still a bit of work to be done, and I really wanted to have the release done before the end of May. That means that unless I really can ask the universe for more time, I will be taking a vacation from this blog in order to concentrate on getting the BOB updates finished and tested. That means things may be a bit quiet here for the month.

    It would have been great to catch up! Guess we’ll have to do it the old fashioned way, via email. ;)
