I've been completely offline for a little while. My wife gave birth to our twin sons extremely prematurely in early September completely unexpectedly. The boys were given a 20% chance to survive at birth. The older of my sons died in early October and I buried him a week later. My younger son remains in the intensive care nursery under constant supervision. It's been a really rough couple of months for me and computers were the last thing on my mind. I'm trying to start work part time again to resume some semblance of a normal life. God willing my son will survive to be released from the hospital, but not until early January at the soonest. So in the meantime we're spending a lot of time at the hospital and a little time at work to extend our maternity/paternity leave and pay the bills. If folks are interested there's a site we've set up that journals the boys' progress at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/tristanharperkleinkeane. I've been back at work for a couple of days, mostly doing Drupal module reviews. I've found a few new vulnerabilities that the Drupal security team are working on resolving and I'm still chasing one issue that I submitted before the boys were born. Hopefully those will all be resolved soon. I'll be sure to post details as they become available (after a fix is released).
