I have a wonderful announcement to make, but my cold and general feeling of absolute crappiness has kept me from my laptop. I have tons I want to write, but I just haven't been able. And I've learned that if I cough while laying down the surgical umbilical hernia causes intense pain AND gets really really hot and angry. Praying this cold passes quickly and the coughing ends even more quickly. I hope you all had a lucky binary day (and double ten day for those of you in Taiwan and any other country that celebrates such days). Regular blathering shall continue shortly.
