    After some website issues we took a short hiatus a little sooner than expected.  The good news is our web site is coming back, and we’ll be back this week with a new podcast episode.  In fact, the plan is to make all episodes podcasts in the future, meaning you can listen to them here, or subscribe to our RSS Feed in your favorite podcast software and you can listen to us wherever you want!  Look for our upcoming episode on April 15 with a tribute to David Craighead as well as a fresh update to our website.
