Wow...I had no idea you were in such a bad way. Then again, I don't follow as closely as many others do... Anyhoo, hope you feel better soon. I've known people who've had sinus/nasal passage surgery before, and from what I've heard, it's one "great big bunch of no fun" indeed. Take care, ---chris

And here I thought I was the only one geeky enough to think that way. :^) Except that I tend to further divide the concept into foreground and background processes with a sort of moveable divider between the two sides. Like all CPUs, my brain has only so much computing power. If there's something my brain/CPU is working (usually unpleasant) that requires more effort than I really want to devote to it, it gets relegated to the status of "background process." Unfortunately, as the background process(es) grow in number and complexity, the amount of resources for foreground procs gets further and further squeezed. If it gets bad enough, mental paralysis the usual result until either the offending process is killed or finally runs to completion. (It's always SUCH a relief after that.) Anyway, just wanted to chuck my $0.02 in. Hopefully it wasn't the Lamest Inaugural Post Ever...
