I'm back from CONduit. It was great. Adding to the greatness -- Sandra and I got to go together, and I did not touch a computer or in any way interact with the Web for 60 consecutive hours. I think that's a record for this year, I do. It's bedtime. Tomorrow I'll spend most of the day with Sandra as we retrieve our children from Pocatello. Buffer-fu begins again on Tuesday. Work on the next book begins on Thursday. I need to catch up on some sleep now.
