Hey Notes community,
Wow, you did a GREAT job responding to the guest bloggers! And the guest bloggers learned that it's really easy to be a guest blogger, so expect more of that to come!
I had a really wonderful 2-week vacation (holiday as many would say). And yes it is ironic that my vacation consisted of many of the things I complained about during the ice storm, 9e.g. no phone, no internet, etc. but it was indeed warm in Maui).
My husband, 2 kids, sister and her husband, spent 2 weeks on Maui, and I highly recommend it! I'm returning relaxed and full of optimism for Notes 8. I had only about a thousand mail messages. that's not bad at all considering I was gone for 2 whole weeks.
Upon my return, I discovered that my terrific boss Chris Reckling of InsideLotus fame, has been promoted to being our second-line manager in the design group. Go Chris, this is a great opportunity!
I also learned (I was assumimg this) that the daily builds are getting ready to be released as a wider beta. I am on an evaluation team. I download the daily build and help to determine if it's ready for the wider beta. It was really exciting to download a build yesterday and see how much progress was made in my two weeks of absence. I have downloaded the most recent bilild and I'm evaluating it on behalf of users such as yourself. (I'd also post hawaii pix but the blogger software tells me that i am out of space, I'll figure it out eventually).
Many thanks to the guest bloggers!
