Why have a blog and never post?

Well, the main reason, is that I usually don't have anything of interest to post.

However, right now I am on vacation in Boston.  I flew out to the US on Saturday a couple of weeks ago (12/04/2008) to attend SIPit 22 (up in Durham, NH) with two colleagues from my work - I must say that the environment up in New Hampshire is wonderful, I believe I am unlikely (for a number of reasons) to ever want to live in the US, but if I had to it wouldn't be too bad if it were up in New Hampshire.  My colleagues flew home last Saturday but I have stayed out an extra week, and it seems like (based on the weather alone) a good week to spend out here.

The only disappointment I have had so far is sunburn on my face and ears (guess which genius went out whale watching on the hottest day of the year without using any sun-cream or wearing a hat), the Prudential Tower (or Towah, as the door man called it) observation deck being closed, and a bit of queasyness cause by my decision to skip breakfast and lunch and then go on the Samuel Adams Brewery Tour (with free beer at the end of it).  I highly recommend the Brewery tour, it is free and the beer is excellent.

I have put the pictures from my vacation (so far) online.  There are a lot of photographs there, but I am particularly pleased with some of them (especially some of the ones from the whale watching and some of those taken in the New England Aquarium).
