Even techies make New Year’s Resolutions and promises to themselves. Some even involve important things. My #1 resolution for 2009 – Install and learn Dragon NaturallySpeaking software (the cheap $59 Standard Edition). I’ve talked to way too many people who love this software to keep ignoring it.

Merry Christmas! I wish for each of you to receive the glorious gifts of the season – Peace, Joy and Lasting Happiness. My special regard and gratitude to all nurses and Certified Legal Nurse Consultants.
