I guess this is as good a time as any (i.e. the optimum time to deploy it as an excuse) to announce the birth of Heidi Angela Beryl Young on March 13th at 15:41. Although fatherhood is taxing, it's a very natural experience (so far) and I've been surprised at how much work I've been able to do. A big reason for that is my supremely capable wife, of course. More blogging this year, I promise. Despite the sleep deprivation.
