I am back. It seems ages ago when I was able to post here almost on a daily basis, and now almost two entire weeks went by without me popping in, not even to just say hello.
If you have been watching the news, you probably suspect the reason of such a long absence. The situation on world market has deteriorated steadily, and now our economic shop has a forecast for a recession in the fourth quarter of the year (that is: now) until the late spring 2009. We have been working almost around the clock, literally: a few decisions by the federal authorities were taken on Saturdays or Sundays, so I have been working during weekends, and some other events took place during night time, because of the time difference with Europe and Japan. These days, it is not uncommon to start exchanging emails with my boss at 3am, and stop past 11pm. Needless to say, Mrs. DestoFante is not happy! I will now proceed, in a different post, to some wargaming updates.

Welcome back, sir. I've missed your posts.

Hopefully this financial crisis will be less intense than the press keeps playing it.

Anyway it is good to have you back.
