So I was off to a running start with my ambitious new goals of contributing to several open source projects and creating a blog worth reading. But as my wife so keenly pointed out, as soon as I get an inch better, I try to take it a yard.

You see, I’ve been going to Occupational Therapy and will soon get some Physical Therapy for my back and wrist problems related to RSI (Repetitive Stress Injury). Carpal Tunnel is a form of RSI, but it is not what I am afflicted with. I have ulnar neuritis with a dash of tendinitis and a sprinkle of cubital tunnel syndrom (carpal’s lesser known cousin from the Bronx) thrown in.

After reading Dare Obasanjo’s and Scott Watermasysk’s blogs, I was inspired to contribute to their respective open source projects. I started out with a mad flurry of documentation writing for RssBandit without taking frequent enough breaks. I know, bad move. My back and wrists have flared up and I’m in a bit of pain.

To add to my misery, I’ve caught a bad cold. Yippee Kiyay! Anyways. I’m going to turn things down a notch, but will try to write something worth reading every so often.

    Sorry to here about your ailments. Take it easy, nothings worth getting yourself sick over.

    Thanks. It's more a function of my personality than the results of a cost/benefits analysis. ;)
