First, the good news ...

I was nicely surprised with an early birthday present from my wife today, a 20GB iPod, (and there is an iTrip on the way). In the event that you've never laid hands on an iPod, let me tell you that one of the coolest things about them is the innovative interface that permits simple, one-handed operation, even more convenient considering that I go in for hand surgery first thing tomorrow.

Needless to say, I will be somewhat out of things, (and falling desperately behind), while my hand heals. If you are waiting for new OpenNMS packages, (Tarus tagged 1.1.4 yesterday), I ask that you bear with me, it is top of list and will get done as soon as I am able. For anything else, drop me an email, I'll respond to those even if I have to type one-handed.
