There seems to be a consensus amongst people I know (based on highly scientific poll results of course) that 2007 was one of the most strange, stressful and just plain bizarre years on record. Maybe it's just that all my friends are hitting their mid-thirties and freaking out, I don't know. At any rate, after a much needed hibernation on top of a not-so-much needed year of chaos, disorder and growth, I think I've finally got the cobwebs out of my brain and am ready to start blogging and being active again. So consider this the first shot across the bow (and no, it probably won't be a machine gun shot, more like a muzzle-loader, but at least it's a shot). I'll follow this up with a post about our exporter and how you can blow it up real good.
