A Short Blogging Holiday

With a week long vacation coming up later this week and all the required preparation for travel and other tasks to complete beforehand, I've decided to take a little blogging break.

My weblog will be idle starting Wednesday the 23rd and back in action somewhere around August 2nd, though I might be tempted to pop back in and comment on the Tour or any wild Palm handheld announcements that pop up. We'll see.

Meanwhile, I thought it might be nice to leave a list of tidbits you might want to check out while I'm on my little hiatus:

Palm Stuff:

ZDNet: David Nagel Unplugged: Can Palm re-connect?
Found this link through PDAGeek today and have yet to read it, but at first scan it looks pretty darn good.

Seattle Times: On Golden Palm: The battle of the handhelds
Jeff Carlson has been a Mac guy and Palm guy for a long time and writes very well. PDANews24 put me onto this story today.

Wired: Sony Breaks Ground With New PDA
An in-depth article about Sony's new Clie PEG-UX50.

Cycling: Frankie Andreu's Tour de France 2003 Diaries: Stage 15
Frankie has some great insider diary entries about the tour, since he has access to the riders (and specifically Lance Armstrong). The site's navigation is a little lacking as for showing archive entries, but you can manually load up the stage diary entry you want by changing the last 4 digits of the page name to the date you desire (03tdf_fa_0721.htm).

Frank Steele: Tour de France 2003 Weblog
Frank is doing an excellent job tracking down the most interesting stories on the net related to the Tour. This is the place to go for the last few stages of the Tour this week. Keep rollin' Frank!

Oskar van Rijswijk: LOGos Tour Blog
Oskar is also doing a superb job tracking down stories and video clips -- his was the place I found the clip of Armstrong going off-road in stage 9. Greetz Oskar!

Have a great week and a half... I know I will.:-)
