Last Saturday I became father to a baby girl - in addition to our 2½year old son.
Those of you who are my former collagues from MySQL, you know about the generous Scandinavian 5 week vacations. (Which in MySQL were practiced globally.) I have decided that now is a good time for me to enjoy another Scandinavian perk: long paternity leave. I will be home with the rest of the family until approximately next February :-)
I will be much less online, but I do hope I can spend more time on some non-work activities like my Drupal module, The Open Database Alliance, blogging about software patents and such. So you'll probably not even notice I'm actually on leave.
Other than that I intend to spend a lot of time with the family, enjoy the weather and our garden, relax, paint a bed yellow, meet some friends, do barbecues... and of course play and watch a lot of football :-)
ps: together with my daughter we'd like to send greetings to all the other YAMBies being born this spring and summer (yamb = yet another mysql baby), judging from all the other soon to be fathers I was stuck with in California due to the volcano and ashcloud, it seems this is quite a productive year. (And we of course ship in the second quarter!)
