A coworker used the word "vanillafy" today, meaning to simplify or make more ordinary, as in "we could vanillafy these examples so that they apply to all operating systems." I love this word.

Where am I?

I have gotten a few questions lately from readers about where I have been and whether I am OK. The answer (in a nutshell) is that I have been very busy at work over the past few months. So I have not had time for blogging, and have been too stressed out to write anything even if I did have the time. I do plan to return to regular writing here soon.
