In the meantime, while I have to remain mute about everything, have a laugh:
Just didn't want everyone in the public thinking all deployment videos were as bad as the recent newsworthy clips from Enterprise.

I've successfully turned over the duties of Web Administrator (yes, there will be no more back and forth follies yelling at myself wearing different hats) to Alex Lutz. Instead, I plan to focus on drawing connections from Lutz in Bruno (horrible movie, but it has its purpose I suppose) to our very own Lutz in Multi-Media. Although I know many of you don't get the humor there, trust me, you should be laughing. Oh well.
Alex has the complex job of heading up the virtual rennovations I just don't have time for, as well as bringing onboard a programmer or two. I look very much forward to seeing the product of her work when the new website launches just after our Board Meeting on the 23rd.
In case you're getting sick of having to wait until after our Board Meeting to find out precisely what it is we're up to, you could always take a drive down to Avon NC, have a lovely winter weekend in the Outer Banks, and find out then and there all the big things we're hatching. Just saying.

Well, after a long and, if I do say so myself, well deserved hiatus, we're back in business. Of course this doesn't mean I wasn't working away in the Dockyard, it just means I haven't been telling you about it.
First things first. The Board of Directors has called a rare in person meeting on January 22-23 in Avon, NC (yes, that's the Outer Banks). The agenda is slammed and should be very interesting, with several new projects (including one HUGE new program) topping off an endless laundry list of housekeeping items. The meeting has been opened to anyone who wants to go, though only the Board members themselves will be voting. But there are many NHS and non-NHS types whose input is much appreciated, and you're most welcome at the proceedings. Send me an email if you want to go and need information and directions.
Next, the Lofting Bay is occupied by parts for one of the new programs. No, I won't go into detail but it's lots of fun to walk out and see all of our shops filled to capacity, with four boats in the yard under tents etc. Everything has been surviving the weather admirably, and with the exception of dealing with Snowmageddon 2010 (which wasn't all THAT bad) everything has been rather quiet so far. I anticipate starting up Wednesday night working sessions again soon, with the stipulation that all volunteers keep mum about the new material until the projects are made public. I'll put those notices out on Facebook - I don't think it'll be this week but it should happen next Wednesday.
SO, lots going on. But with limited time to write at the moment, I'll jump back on and outline the plan of attack for 2011 later tonight.
