Brief Hiatus

We’re headed to Houston today and then off on our cruise on Monday. I’ve decided not to take my laptop, so I will most likely not post anything over the next week.

Although, I do have a new weekly series of posts starting on Monday, which is already scheduled.

Also, I hope to load up some pictures on Glass Renagerie for the week, though they will not be cruise pictures — those will have to wait until the following week.

Oh, and Happy Pi Day!

    I’ll try to upgrade your Glass Renagerie blog to the latest wordpress for you while you’re gone.

    In return, I will gladly accept a cruise for my family.

      @whall – I’d appreciate it. Not to the level of sending your family on a cruise, but I do appreciate it. 🙂

    OK. I’m officially starting to get jealous of all the fun you’ve been having this past month. 😀 Have a great time!!

    Enjoy your vacation and I look forward to your return. However, I blame you not one bit for leaving your laptop behind. Well played.

      @kapgar – At $.40/minute for wireless Internet on the ship, I decided it’s just not worth the bother. But it was a tough decision. The deciding factor was a slight concern about the security of leaving my laptop in the room.

    Have fun.

    Was not taking the laptop a personal or joint decision? I get requests to leave technology behind on vacations, until after we get home when I get praised for bringing a laptop, cell phone and a few other items.

    Of course, a camera is always a must.

      @martymankins – The decision was mine, though my wife certainly supported not taking the laptop. I am taking my iPhone, which still leaves a lot of options available. I’m thinking of taking the SIM card out while at port so that I can search for free wireless without worrying about cell charges.

      The camera is a definite, though I decided to take only my “travel” lens (18-200 mm). After all, this is exactly the kind of situation for which I purchased it. This will be the real test of whether I’m satisfied with the lens.
