Well, I've returned from the family gathering for the holidays, a few pounds heavier. I'll do an update on the festivities (with pics) in the next few days. But for now, HELP OTHERS! Patrick Rothfuss is holding a fundraiser for a worth cause and has a bunch of DAW books up for grabs, signed by the author and such. Go check them out and then donate something to cause! I haven't researched how the bidding works or anything else yet, but I thought I'd pass the word along.
