DWWTWT?: December 31

In what seems to be becoming an annual tradition, I’m “going public” with the final commuting-oriented post of the calendar year.  If this “tradition” strikes you as more of an “indulgence,” please skip this post and accept my best wishes for a joyous, prosperous, and healthy 2008 (wishes also fully applicable if you keep reading).  A note…

Non-Technical News: R.I.P. Dan Fogelberg

Sad news today that songwriter Dan Fogelberg has passed away at age 56 after a three-year battle with prostate cancer. I discovered Fogelberg’s music at about the same age my sons are now (14 & 15).  My habit in the day was to find new artists to listen to by devouring the liner notes of…
