Hi Folks, sorry for being so quiet recently. It’s been a rough month with my mother going into the ER, then ICU, and then into hospice and finally her funeral this week. She had a long illness but I don’t think you’re ever really prepared for the end.
I was fortunately to be able to spend a considerable amount of time with her this past month. Despite all of the stress I am thankful for friends, family and even employees that have gone the extra mile in helping me out. It’s never a good time in ones life but the support was awesome.
I didn’t get nearly as much work as I was hoping to do during this period but it was comforting to know that I could connect to my home computer and get any file that I needed. Heck, if I wanted to I could have done all of my work ON the home computer from my laptop or even iPad over the internet but the lag time was rather annoying.
But, being able to check and respond to emails, surf the web and do a lot of general stuff on my iPhone and iPad made life a little easier. The thought of dragging a laptop around with me all the time was tiresome and the iPad was distracting when I needed it to be. Be nice if someday I could do software development ON the iPad. I bet that will take less than 5 years for that to happen. Just guessing but I see no reason why you couldn’t.
Well, that’s that and I hope to be re-inserting myself back into normal life over the next couple of days. Thank you again for all of your condolences and warm thoughts.
