As many of you already know, I’m a software engineer by trade. During the day, I work for a small Rhode Island medical software company, with a truly fantastic bunch of people. It’s given me the ability to, among other things, buy a home, pay my bills, and start this site.

And, while I love what I do, I’m still a software engineer by trade. This means that, every so often, we hit a point where production ramps up, deadlines loom, and I’m doing what I can to get everything finished, while maintaining a strong standard of quality. And, ultimately, this means that I’ll end up working late or logging in from home to get a bit more done.

“Your point being…?”

Well, dear reader, this means that, unfortunately, sacrifices must be made. I’m entering a busy period at this point, with several new projects lined up and a firm December 31 deadline on all of them. This means that we will be seeing a little slowdown on The Herald, as I work on completing my tasks.

“What kind of slowdown?”

Well, that depends. I’m still going to shoot for five articles a week. However, this may not come to pass, and we may see weeks come by with four. I will still be handling press releases as I receive them, and editing other writers’ work as it comes in. While I hate the inconvenience so soon after jumping from development of Version 3.0, it’s a necessity that must be taken.

So, for now, I want to thank you for your patience. I apologize for the inconvenience.
