I Hab A Cold

Odd, this seems to be a perfectly straight cold. I've had these sinus things so often, it is refreshing to have something which doesn't involve turning my head into solid concrete. (grin) Running a fever on Sunday, I called in sick and canceled my class for Monday. Better Monday than later in the week.

I always tell my students not to bring back germs from break -- and that if I catch the person who gets me sick, they'll flunk. I don't think they're quaking in their shoes enough. Really.

Upgrade

Finally got around to upgrading my LiveJournal to a paid account. And it immediately broke my journal design and I had to hack around the settings to make it look right again. Hopefully things will look all right for y'all.

Later,

Things You Might Want to Read

Ansible

David Langford of the U.K. writes a marvelous SF column that appears online here and also a column in the U.K. SF magazine Interzone. Langford has had quite a lock on the Hugo award for the best fan category for a long time.

I have to quote this little snippet from the current issue:
• Mike Glicksohn passes on a Sidney Coleman story: 'Sid was late for a panel at a physics conference but as he walked in one of the panelists said, "I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that question." Sid replied: "I do. What was the question?" You had to love the man.'
