Heavy Robot in Japan

Ok, ok, invade may be a little over stated.  Starting the new year off a little differently though, and I am in Japan for about a month.  I'm in Japan for most of January, but will be returning on the 24th, and resuming work likely on the 25th (jet lag not withstanding).

During this time I am still working per usual, just on a slightly altered schedule to the "states" due...

Hello (again) World!

Posted in Company Update, drupal, new design, riverbend, website

It's been a long coming, but Heavy Robot finally has a proper website!
