Holidays Until September

It is not often that I go on holidays. This can be mainly attributed to the fact that my work and spare time balance was leaning towards lots of work and not so much spare time. This is going to change and it is starting tomorrow with a seven day trip to Jerusalem. I just want to let everyone know that I prepared some articles in advance and will probably find the time to update the website with a few articles each day as the hotel where I'm staying is providing free broadband Internet to their guests. I'm taking my new Acer laptop with me and I'm thinking of updating Ghacks in the evenings after visiting the interesting sights of the city during the day.

I just want everyone to know that in advance so that no one thinks I'm dead or decided to stop updating the website. The other authors will continue with their usual schedule. If you have any tips or ideas for the trip let me know. I already got some great advice from Dotan for which I will be forever grateful.

I will go on at least two additional trips this year and plan to do about six in the coming years to find some time to relax and see the places that I always wanted to visit. I'm off now packing my suitcase and doing some final preparations for my departure tomorrow morning.

    Have a great holiday, Martin. Even we readers need a break from Ghacks now and then. :-)

    Looking forward to freshly energized posts on your return.

    Have fun!

    I could use some myself but regular job (or two) is not that easy to get rid of as blog. :)

    PS don’t tell me you bought one of Acer Timeline models I was talking about under tablet post?.. I will have to change my tagline to “gHacks owner buys notebooks on my advice” :)))

    It’s so hard to make time for yourself, especially when you’re running site like ghacks – but it’s so important, too. Enjoy your vacation :)
