Dodged a Tidal Wave

I was very scared yesterday morning, fearing for the life of our COO, Eric Porres, and his wife, Margaret, who are vacationing in Sri Lanka. An earthquake and subsequent tsunami have killed over 20,000 people in the region. Thank God for technology. I tried to hail Eric on his cell early yesterday and sent an e-mail to his Blackberry. A few minutes later, an SMS text message came across the screen of my Treo - it was Eric and he reports that he is fine. Thankfully, he was on the other side of Sri Lanka.
