Blogging Hiatus?

As much as I’ve enjoyed playing around with this site in the last couple of weeks, alas, the real world calls. I start at Baker Botts, tomorrow, as does Sarah. So, perhaps there will be a bit of a break in the blogging. To all five of my readers: please come back; I will not disappear for good.

I am an avid user of lots of tools for learning more about websites (various whois sites, DNS lookup services, Google PageRank, Alexa, just about anything that simplifies my use of the web.)
