As is the custom this time of year, those of us in the United States, and the expats living abroad are likely deep in the midsts of celebrating a day of thanks by feasting upon a traditional Turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
Of course that means the Rational Support North American crew is largely, if not entirely out of the office today and tomorrow (Nov 24th and 25th). Likewise, the blog will be quiet tomorrow as well to give us some rest from today's feasting
To our entire global audience of clients and IBMers alike, we wish you the best today and are extremely thankful you have chosen to follow us here on Notes from Rational Support, and more so that you've found our efforts to be beneficial to your end goals. Cheers to you all!
