Off to the Carribean for some R&R

When my sailing buddy contacted me to ask if I wanted to help sail his newly acquired boat from Tortola, British Virgin Islands to Cape Canaveral, FL I knew it was going to be a hard decision. Do I abandon FreePBX for a month and go sailing the Caribbean or keep coding?

Needless to say, it didn't take more than a few micro seconds to make my decision, but you will be left in good hands while I am gone from tomorrow through mid-December! Darren will be going strong leading the way on v3 while Mikael, Moshe and others will be around to man the ship on v2 so all should continue smoothly.

In the meantime, if you want to follow our adventure you can keep your eye on We are just finalizing our use of technology to send out tweets from our satellite phone as well as other forms of communications that we should have access to during the course of our trip!

So keep an eye on our tweets if you want to keep up with real progress. I've got tango (our mascot frog) packed with me and will try to take a trail of photos with him on the way. For now, I'll check in when I can!


In the mean time, if any of you really miss our lead developer, you can catch his Astericon presentation here:
