Well, it's been a heck of a year by any estimation, and we can expect more turbulence in Flight 2009, too. But, right now, it's the holidays.
Whether you're enjoying Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or the post-solstice glow - or simply taking delight in the food, drink and company - we at ZDNet UK hope you're having a great time and a well-deserved rest. We shall certainly be doing our best in that regard.
We will of course be back up and running on Monday - although that'll be a short week for all - and soon after that we'll kick off our coverage of what promises to be, er, an eventful year.
All the best, and enjoy developing the rationales behind your New Year's resolutions!
