As I continue to work on Retrievem, I keep wondering how far I would have progressed had I not turned off comments here. As much as I miss the conversations, they were tangential to my work: stories, Scrabble, spam rants (ironic, huh?) and other posts of a more personal nature.

I’ll tell you this, try doing anything for an hour and, unless it is sleeping, it will drain a bit of your energy.

When you click on the UserVoice icon, you will see this:
Whether you have something to say about a blog post or one of my products, please feel free to type in your feedback or question and send it off. I’ll respond as soon as I can. Thanks!
