Taking A Break

May 9, 2010

I write this from my hospital bed, where I am recovering from blood clots in both lungs; my right lung was 100% blocked, my left lung 60%. I am doing well, and expect a complete recovery.

However, I will not be blogging for a while, probably for two to four weeks. Until I resume, your task is to visit Programming Praxis every Tuesday and Friday morning and do any exercise you have not yet done; I want to see those comment queues filling up.

    Howdy, love the site, glad to hear you’re on the way to a full recovery. That kind of stuff is extremely scary. Feel better soon!

    Best wishes from me as well, and best of luck on your recovery.

    To fill in for Phil’s absence, next Tuesday I will post a new programming exercise on http://bonsaicode.wordpress.com/ at the usual time.
    I’ll try and see if I can keep doing so until Phil gets better.
