Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

molecular medicine

In this week's Economist: Molecular medicine. An interesting article on some changes that are coming in the way we understand and treat disease (at least where there's enough money).

Too bad there isn't some molecular thingamagic to relieve me from this wretched cold/flu right now. Aside from that old medicine called "sleep and rest"...

just. blog. it.

A couple of days ago Dylan released JustBlogIt, a Firefox extension to allow right-click posting to a weblog. It's excellent (yep, using it right now). The only thing missing is the swoosh!

ps: it's also missing the ability to show the "preview" button in movabletype. But that's a minor detail and probably a movabletype issue more than anything.

back, sort of

I got back to Dublin yesterday, after a trip that was ok but tiring as usual, with the added bonus of having either a cold, or the flu, or both, which didn't particularly help matters for stabilizing my jetlagged body once my feet touched the ground again.

Plus, I had not checked email (or anything else) in days, and it turns out that the web server had crashed for some reason on Saturday, probably just about the time I stopped checking email (and everything else). Predictable.

Right now I feel terrible, but I'll be doing some stuff throughout the day anyway, including answering some of the email that has been waiting "in the queue" for way too long. I also have to get going that server upgrade/transfer/whatever thing before the month is out. This last server crash was a good reminder of how inadequate what I'm running now is.

ps: and thanks for additional comments (via email) from readers regarding my comment spam problems. Once the server switch is done hopefully I will be able to reactivate comments---even if I have to deal with comment spam rebuilding the site should be manageable until I settle on a solution. Of course, I'll post about whatever solutions, be them temporary or otherwise. :)
