Happy New Year/Off to Peru

Hi everyone, Just a quick note before I run out the door en route to Peru for a week.

Thank you all for a wonderful year. It was an absolute blast and I owe an incredible debt of gratitude to all of the readers of the site for helping some of my projects get off the ground.

Anyway, thanks for everything and I’ll be doing some 2008 wrap-up type stuff when I get back. (Also, I’m not bringing my computer with me, so if you email and I don’t respond that’s why. Oh, and if you’ve emailed me in the last two weeks or so and I haven’t responded, sorry about that too, I’ll be back to my regular emailing ways come January.)

Thanks again, happy new year and best of luck in 2009.

– Noah

PS – Sorry for the brevity here, I’m literally being picked up in 10 minutes.
