Weekly Wrap: November 2, 2012

Weekly Wrap Image Another week and it’s…wait a minute, it’s November? This week sped by me quickly and with Kyle’s absence (he was probably working on his tan on a beach somewhere), the posting was light. I’m glad Kyle will be back next week. I bet you are, too.

The last few weeks have been crazy. Personally and professionally, there is a lot going on and, as usual, the year always ends at top speed. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I hope any EE community members in the Northeast have escaped any major damage or injury during Hurricane Sandy. I also hope that you are all warm and safe. And that if your electricity is not yet restored, that it is soon. I have family in the northeast out of power for days now and I wish there was something I could do about it.

Since EECI the community has pulled together to push the Stack Overflow proposal closer toward approval. We continually show that we are a self-sufficient community that can organize itself, support itself and help each other, no matter what happens around us. I’m sincerely proud of that. You should be, too.

Okay, enough from me. Let’s get to the news.
