Due to recent changes in Dude's life, he hasn't had any time to contribute to "A Dude's Blog.
The big news is that Dude quit his job at Company A, a large software company in California. He had a good run there, eight years, but needed a change.
The better news is that Dude has landed a position at Company B, a small software company in California that does a lot of digital image processing. Should be quite exciting.
Dude has plenty of stuff to write about: the new Al Franken Book, "Lies (And the Lying Liars Who Tell Them", the serenity of Bald Head Island, the upcoming trip to the San Juan Islands, the new job, etc.
