Why yes, we’re still here (deep into 2023 now)!


A big hello to the handful of people who may still stop in on this site.

So… I had a nice happy hour with a couple of former colleagues earlier (but forgot to check in on FB – which is where we people of a certain age tend to record our lives these days – until later).

One was our service’s former product manager, who is a great guy and colleague who moved laterally in the organization (and whom

Hello 2022 (belatedly)
