Welcome to the In The Meantime BlogThis blog started almost 7 years ago. We have gone through several "faces" and stages including a failed experiment with vBulletin forum instead of a blog format. Right now we are revamping behind the scenes. This is "in the meantime" blog which is a WP template and very standardized widget areas. There is "stuff" missing that will be put back on the new blog like the link to classic posts. I'll let you guys know when we're about to transition and I will take whatever active threads there are with us to the new site (including the check-in thread.) Stay tuned!
