Well I can dispel the myth of my tragic death in a storm of Judgment day proportions. No, much to my misfortune I was incapacitated by the smallest of all things... a virus. Since Sunday evening I have suffered one of the worst bouts with flu in my young life. This virus comes equipped with all the latest features and options. When not doubled over with excruciating abdominal pains, I'm sitting on a porcelain throne experiencing all the joys of uncontrollable diarrhea. In the few brief moments respite from pain and purging, I suffer delirium as a result of high fever and insatiable fatigue. Needless to say, the past three days have not been fun for this lad.

But the show, or blog as it were, must go on. And on it goes. It is the Captain's duty to go down with his ship, but the ship should not go down with it's Captain. I will resume normal posting starting today, which won't be easy for me since I have a backlog of "my real job" work piled high on my desk. But enough of my whining.
