Taking some time off

Taking some time off

For years now – whenever I have taken some time off from work I have gone through this process:

  • A few weeks before my vacation: “I’m going to get blog posts pre-written for every day of my vacation!  No one will even know that I am gone!”
  • One week before my vacation: “I’m going to get a couple of blog posts written – say, 1 or 2 a week – and people should not notice too much”
  • One day before my vacation: “Well, maybe I will write some blog posts while I am on vacation”

To date – I do not think I have every posted a blog post while on vacation.  Strangely enough – it seems that once I am no longer at work it does not take very long at all for me to remember that I like spending time with my family & playing computer games more than I like to do work!

So with that in mind – I am taking some time off – and will not be posting here.  My vacation finishes at the end of December – so I will see you all in the new year.

  • Enjoy your vacation, Ben ! :-)

    Well deserved !

  • although the saying is "work to live", i find that its all about having to enjoy work and that joy is less when stuff "needs" to be done.. so i wont be surprised if i see a blogpost in your holiday.. as long you dont feel the need to do it.. ;-)

    and if you don't, we'll live.

    Happy holiday!

  • I hope you enjoy your vacation as much as I enjoy my own vacation! I do hope you play some old games in virtual machines, I really likes those articles.

  • I've been meaning to try the "Greatest Hits" approach - rerunning past blog posts with a quick blurb at the beginning about things that have changed since the original post, plus links to other supporting material around the web.

  • Ben, Can you please look at re-uploading the images from the old bacchus site and updating the old posts.

    heres the old url: "ben.bacchus.com.au/.../"

    the date of the last use of the bacchus site for images: Fri, Feb 3 2006.


  • enjoy your vacation and thanks for your work!

  • Enjoy your vacation and happy new year !!!
