My absence from the blog-o-sphere was not of my own making, unfortunately my computer video card decided to give up the ghost and I was computer-less for over 2 weeks. Luckily after talking to Apple and working with the repair shop, we were able to get a $700 repair free of charge. The video card was a known issue and although just a few months out of warranty, Apple did the right thing and covered the repair. Huge thanks to Apple and PowerMax!
You should see several blog posts here shortly!
