Back on the trail

I got side-tracked into a patch of overly-demanding obligations. I dealt with one at a time, and can now see the lights in the window of yon saloon.

Anything fun happened around here the last few weeks?

It seems that a bunch of us all got extremely busy at the same time (Pauline, Carol, you and me). Hopefully, we didn't lose everyone else in the meantime.

Good to see you back Katrina! I for one have definitely been slacking off as far as my moderator presence goes, just about to catch up on a couple nitpicks.

Your persistance is admirable!

Good thing you're seeing lights in the saloon, means it's got some friendly folk still hanging out there.

Just got back from Yosemite. It was just what the doctor ordered. Did some hiking, rafting, basking on the hot rocks on the river bank. Now it's back to reality. Ever notice how your car always seems to know exactly how much excess money you have in your checking account? And decides that you need to spend that money on it?
Anyway, start my new location (same job, same company) on Friday. Should have more time to hang out at the ranch!

There is a natural law (up there with Gravity and Murphy's Law) that deals with financial matters, and it says:

Necessary expenses will always grow to equal income unless we protest to the contrary

I have to admit that I protest and protest and become quite contrary, but I suspect that I haven't lodged my objections with the correct authority.

Now, if I remember correctly, I was on Servlets 4a, and trying to figure out how to get the servlet to display the .jsp without forwarding. I'm still missing the big picture (and the really akward medium-sized picture, methinks).
