Heading back down to San Diego…

I know I have been quiet for the past month, but I have been dealing with a personal issue. My best friend is slowing passing away and has “‘weeks if not days” to live. About a year ago, he found out he has kidney cancer and sadly he found even worse news… it was stage 4, which means it had spread to other organs. This past year, he has been on the losing end of this battle as it has aggressively spread throughout his body. It is now to a point where it has spread to his brain.

Needless to say, each day has gotten worse and he is now rapidly losing his memories as well. I am now preparing to go down for the last time to be there for his family and help them get through this. If it is not too much to ask, if you could send some prayers or best wishes their way… I would really appreciate it.

When I come back, I have a lot of articles that I plan to write, some on SQL and Windows, plus some networking stuff. I just have not had the time and also my mind has been on my friend and his family.
