  1. Jack, thanks for the link. You’ve picked up on the primary theme of my life these days — do what you can with what you have.

    That’s what I’m telling everybody in my new job — you want to do something, do it. Find a way. We don’t have our blog hosting set up yet, use WordPress. We don’t have an easy way to get your videos into Flash, use Google Video or YouTube. Just do it.
