The first day of work yesterday after most people being gone for 2 or 3 weeks was refreshing. I attended a few meetings about design issues we've been having and people involved seemed to be coalescing around decisions that make sense. A good start to the new year. The main problems seem to not be be making changes but not breaking folks as we make the changes. Processing XML in the next version of the .NET Framework is going to kick the llama's azz.  

I already have lots of follow up meetings already scheduled for tomorrow (not today since we're supposed to have a record snowfall for this area today and most people here don't do snow driving). I'll probably be working from home, the streets look dangerous from my the vantage point of my bedroom window.
