I am way behind on blogging and emailing people. As many of you know, Hosting Matters experienced some network connectivity issues yesterday and many blogs were affected. This is not an excuse for my inaction as I have nothing to do with Hosting Matters and run SaaM out of the old homestead.
So, let me get a few things out of the way. First, I've received a few emails asking if people can link to my site. I'll answer all of them here so as to not be rude. Yes, but don't expect links in return. Part of my aesthetics strategy for SaaM is to not cloud up my blogroll with 1000's of links that I don't read. With only a few exceptions, the links you see to your right are some of the links that I read every single day. I would absolutely love to have a job that required me to simply read and respond to blogs all day. However, being that I do have a real job that requires me to do real work, I just don't have the time and have to cherry pick my reading. It's nothing personal to anyone, so please don't take it that way.
That being said, here's a link to 3-Blogs a Day who gave SaaM a wonderful write up. I will be keeping my eye on this one!
Second, we at the SaaM bunker have a new marble in our midst. Say hello to 'Betty the Basset'
And last, have I mentioned that Doom 3 is out now? It crushes my system, but I can get it to a fairly playable state if I turn off a few items such as antialiasing. The Mrs. isn't going to let me buy a new PC anytime soon, so if you've got a new fangled PC with enough horsepower to keep up with the game, I don't want to hear it.
