For those of you in the U.S., I hope you enjoyed your long Independence Day weekend.

The match lasted longer than my Sunday golf game, some four hours and forty eight minutes.
Will the Spanish sports juggernaut continue with Spanish Tour de France competitor, Alejandro Valverde, who is currently in 4th place after three stages, a mere 1:45 behind -- get this -- a French rider???!
Oui, oui,, only two years after the Lance Armstrong Texas bicycling reign of terror ended on the Champs d'Elysses, France's Romain Feillu is leading the peleton.
Of course, there are 18 stages yet to go, and the riders are not even close to being in the mountains yet.

In a post from yesterday afternoon, BizTech reported that the number of IT pros employed in the U.S. reached an all-time high in June, some 3,907,800. That's a net gain of 90K IT pros this year alone.

So what are the hottest jobs in tech? Network systems and data communications analysts.
Time to break out that dusty "TCP/IP for Dummies" tome!
