Happy Personal News on a Sad News Day

The international news today is very disheartening, the complete disintegration of the Afghan government, and the subsequent threat to the nation's women, children, and religious minorities are worrisome, though all-too-predictable.  I'll post my thoughts on that later.

Today, though, I have great personal news- my friend and coworker Jim was able to return to work today after being out for nearly two months.  It was good to see him, I have long valued his expertise, his ethics, and his friendship, and I genuinely missed the man.  He's still engaged in rehabilitation efforts, and he told me he would be taking his time performing the tasks attendant to the job... time is the one thing he has here.  If he needs a break, I'm more than happy enough to jump through hoops to give one to him.

It's nice to have a full roster in the department once again, and to have another set of eyes on the place, another mind to bounce ideas off of.  I'll even go so far to say that it's nice to think I'll be able to have a day off soon.

It's a real relief to see him up and about.

That is good news, and we could sorely use some right now.

Have you guys been hacked or something? For 3 days, MalwareBytes has reported your site as "Strongly discouraged due to malware". No just you either, No More Mister Nice Blog and the Rude Pundit got caught.

Apparently all is right with the world, tho ... for now

Excellent personal news! I'm so glad Jim is recovering well.

I don't believe I've been hacked, that's odd.

Thanks, everybody for the well wishes.
