I'm writing this post from the 3rd floor of a condo building in Bangkok Thailand.  I am on vacation but today my wife has to update her Thai ID card which involves a lot of waiting in a government office.  Since I'm not allowed out of the place we're staying without a handler (don't speak enough Thai to get along..), I have borrowed one of our friend's computers to surf the web.  I saw there are a number of new posts on VCBlog so I figured I'd mention them (in reverse chronological order).
