Where's Waldo... er... Allen?

It's been close to a month since my last blog entry and a *lot* of stuff has happened since then, both personal and corporate. On the corporate front, Delphi 8 for .NET was released to manufacturing on Dec 19, 2003. This is great news because it meant we were able to take advantage of the two-week corporate shut-down.

On the personal front, I lost a very dear person in my life. On December 30th, my mother succumbed to lung cancer. This was quite a shock to my family as she has never smoked a day in her life. However, I am truly thankful that I was able to be with her for her last few days and was by her side the moment she passed along with my wife, sister and brother-in-law. She will be sorely missed. So, until our spirits meet again, bye Mom...

The next few weeks are going to be interesting as we begin execution and planning for the next product releases. I will try and keep things going here, but there will certainly be many distractions as the meeting counts increase and while we slog through the details of planning product cycles.
