In this case, not by a brilliant piece of writing, but by an email from my friend Dan Sweet, who recently wrote to ask if I was dead. And then I realized that it's been almost two full months since I wrote a blog entry.
Suffice it to say, life has been busy lately, but it usually is. More than anything, I've been following the advice of my grandmother:
"If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."
Well, I'm about to emerge from the time of having little nice to say. I'm starting a new job on Monday - more on that later. And I've missed so much in the blogosphere - blog fights, talks about self-improvement, and general security stuff. So much to talk about - I'll be months catching up with all the blogs.
It's good to be back in the land of the living.
