This is just a small post to explain that I have been off travelling with my family the last 5 months, which is the reason for the absence of new content.
I am now back, with a new job, so this blog will resuscitate. As I am with a new company, I will work on different projects and tools, you might probably expect more Hadoop and less Vertica information.
On a side note, I renamed the blog thisdataguy instead of thisdwhguy, as I find this name more meaningful and relevant. The old URLs will still work for a while, but they all redirect with a 301 to their counterparts on thisdataguy.
