    I won't be able to keep such a close eye on the site for the next 7-10 days while I get over it.

    In the meantime, if you do see spam, particularly on the scale of the moron who hit the site this morning, please send me a private message alerting me to it as they're sent to my email -- which I can read on my iPod -- yes I haven't got to the point of taking my laptop to bed with me yet!

    Expect a feature story on dengue fever in the near future!

    Also this puts the redesign on hold until I'm back on deck.

    And lastly, you never ever want to catch dengue fever -- it really sux.

    Good grief, how did you manage that?! Take it easy, and hope you 'shake it off' (or whatever you do) soon.

    Aww sorry to hear this. Hope you feel better soon....think it takes about a week to get over dengue?

    I hope to come and buy you a beer or two when your liver has recovered sufficiently, probably in November sometime. Not leaving till next week though so haven't worked out a detailed itinerary yet, except where the plane lands.
