No I've neither gone missing nor am I dead. I'm just super busy, got a soar throat, meanwhile I'm overloaded with work. I haven't had time for much more than work lately (the sore throat put an abrupt end to my morning gym routine). The Expo is around the corner (starts this Sat) so this situation is self-explanatory. I hope that after May 1 things will slow down a little, although I am pretty sure they won't.
The Expo has already had its soft opening: thousands and thousands of people cramming the Expo area and resulting in nightmare-like photos spreading like a wildfire on the net. It'll be interesting to see what happens when the gates open for real. I'll be working at the Expo area on Saturday, so I promise to give you a report on how things were on Sunday.
