I'm looking forward to giving the keynote at the Halogen Software User Conference this morning in Ottawa.

Note: I've been off the online radar for a couple of months. My Dad passed away at the end of July following a brief illness. Sincere thanks to those who checked in to find out what was going on and offer their sympathy and support. I'll be writing a bit more about all of that shortly.
