Please don't interpret my silence as meaning that I have absolutely nothing going on right now. Almost everything that I've been working on has been behind-the-scenes. I can tell you that a very important business deal is currently being negotiated, and it's been difficult for me to contain my excitement for the past two months. Obviously, it hasn't been approved yet, but I'm staying cautiously optimistic about it. If the deal does go through, it will be a dream come true for me, and will start a buzz around both the technology industry and the media.
In the meantime, I just wanted to let you know that in this issue of Computer Power User, I review both NEO Pro 3.1 and Panda Platinum 2006 Internet Security. Also, February 15th marked my two-year anniversary of officially working at Lockergnome. The time has gone so quickly, and it's hard to believe that it's actually been that long. I sincerely hope that our readers are still enjoying the content that all of us work hard to deliver to them on a daily basis.

You know, I haven't posted anything here in nearly a month, but the funny thing is that I've seen a record amount of legitimate traffic come through on a daily basis. While I'd love to explain my silence, I feel compelled to keep my mouth shut for a little bit longer. Recent events have been very exciting (and terrifying), but instead of thoroughly explaining all of the details about an ongoing story, I'll just save my thoughts for later. Blogging just isn't the important thing right now.
There. I said it.

When your Internet connection goes down, it’s nice to have places like Atlanta Bread Company to go to, especially when there’s one that’s only ten minutes away from where you live. I’m sitting in here right now, and the free Wi-Fi is allowing me to get my work done. Of course, I’ve also been glued to the live coverage of the new Apple products. They never cease to amaze me, and I’m now tempted to spend more money that I don’t have.

A friend of mine won a pair of tickets to an Aqualung recording session at a local radio station and invited me to go with him. 99X routinely invites bands to play for a small group of listeners, and they then record the performance and air it at a later date. These sessions are usually done acoustically, but this time was different. The brotherly duo only played five songs, but what they played was great. I didn't really know much about them going into the radio station, although I had briefly seen parts of their music video before. The up close and personal setting made the event unique and enjoyable, and I look forward to hearing what these guys come out with next.

The October 2005 issue of CPU Magazine is now on newsstands. In it, I review Heatsoft's ADCS 1.18 and ScanSoft's OmniPage Professional 15. I'm under contract to write some more more reviews for them, so it looks like I'll be sticking around for a bit.

I'll be flying out to New York tomorrow to visit with a couple of friends, so any e-mail that I receive during that trip will be responded to on Tuesday or Wednesday. If anything urgent comes up, just call me.

I've been taking the time to get all of my personal projects organized before I tackle the bigger issues. I made some more progress today by taking the basic information on my "resume" Web site and placing it in a PDF document that I can easily maintain and distribute as I see fit. You can find it here.
