This is just a quick aside to let my friends know that I am on the road to recovery from influenza.
I returned to work yesterday after missing six work days, unprecedented for me. I can still feel some weakness and malaise, but I am back in motion.
The most legitimate sign that I am on the mend: I walked Hawken the Irish Wolfhound yesterday afternoon. Our dogs are our best friends.
Welcome back R. As evidenced by the various unfilled holes within Ada and elsewhere, the planet is not the same without you. And or to put it another way you are our positive player whose work and contributuion effects us all. -R
Good to hear.
