i.Take(a); break;

I’ve been away from work for the last five weeks, and since most of that time has been abroad I’ve been completely out of the loop. This is probably the longest time in my career that I’ve gone without giving more than a cursory thought to the world of development.

Getting back into the swing of programming has been hard over the last few days, forcing my brain back into useful patterns of thinking and feeling ‘switched on’ or ‘in the zone’ are never things I’ve really struggled with, so this has been something of an education!

Catching up on more than a month’s worth of releases/updates/news has been less overwhelming than I had thought it would be though, I just can’t decide if there’s not been a great deal happening recently, or whether I’m used to keeping myself more up-to-date than is strictly necessary…
