Stepping out for a bit... Site News
Greetings, Hints readers...

Beginning tomorrow (August 14th), I'm once again leaving the site in the capable hands of kirkmc, aka Kirk McElhearn, my fellow Macworld contributor and author of many Mac-related books. He'll be in charge of hints and related activities until Friday, August 22nd, when I return from "an extended period of recreation, especially one spent away from home or in traveling" (according to Dictionary, that's the definition of "vacation").

Unlike past working vacations on Geek Cruises, this will be a true vacation -- I won't have a reliable (or possibly any) internet connection, and my iPhone's data connection will be shut off so that I don't incur those ghastly AT&T charges for international data usage. In short, if you're trying to contact me for the next 10 days or so, don't expect to have much luck, as I'm headed "off the grid."

I'm sure Kirk will do just fine in my absence, and I'm looking forward to catching up on the hints I missed when I return -- it's not often I get to read the live version of the site and see hints for the first time!

That sounds like an excellent plan. Besides, how much of a vacation is it if your boss still has 15 ways to contact you?

Hmm. What if you're self-employed?

If you can avoid talking to yourself (especially about work) then you should be OK. If you're listening (and responding) to the voices in your head, then it is definitely time for a break.

Hey, that guy has a cool blog. I will definitely be visiting it more often. And the comment posting mechanism is somewhat familiarů

Hehe. He may just happen to be using Geeklog, though I'm a bit fuzzy on the details ;).
