Bob VanderClay has been my business partner at high90 since 2006, and we’ve been friends for over a decade. Posts like this remind me of a quote from Lord of the Rings:

“My dear Frodo!” exclaimed Gandalf. “Hobbits really are amazing creatures… You can learn all that there is to know about their ways in a month, and yet after a hundred years they can still surprise you at a pinch.”

Bob’s shiny new blog Takitapart is built on DocPad. Check it out.
