I have been super sick these last two days. I ate some bad alcohol or food in my new year's eve celebrations and paid for it by spending the last two days in the bathroom. It has been ugly!

On the upside, I've lost a lot of weight and I've been super productive! Submitted for 3 conferences, replied to a backlog of holiday emails, caught up on some reading, setup VPN for my Android phone and iPad thanks to boxpn.com, caught up with amazing people I haven't talked to in a while (owing in part to usual neglect of, and - as I've been sick - my sudden reinterest in) Facebook, started writing some pages on this chapter I've been working on for my next book (Manning's Cloud Foundry in Action), and more! In short: I recommend people take more sick days if they want to catch up on work.
