Sorry to have been out of communication so long. Two family members were hospitalized with life-threatening health problems, so with that going on, it was a challenge just to keep up with my "real job." Thank goodness, everyone is on the road to good health again. So now I'm sticking my head up like a belated ground hog and seeing what's up with the rest of the world. I have a number of messages from readers that need replies, so I'll start on that first, and then see about getting a few posts written up for you. But first, an important announcement about the new TechCenter that's now available on TechNet (see my next post).
