This is just a quick post to say I’m going to be offline for a little bit – I’ve suffered a mild concussion. Don’t worry, as far as I can tell my brain is fine (I did a radio interview that night before I realised this was actually a serious thing, and was every bit cogent and coherent as I would normally hope to be) – but I’ve been told to keep screen work to an absolute minimum and slowly, slowly reintroduce it over the space of several weeks, as long as it doesn’t cause the headaches to intensify. What this means is that I’m basically doing nothing on my laptop except responding to emails with “sorry, I can’t give you a full response right now – I have a concussion and I’ve been told to stay off my computer” – both programming and academic writing have (temporarily, one hopes) fallen by the wayside. I hope to be back at it come October – although a head injury being by definition rather scary, I will not be pushing myself before I am ready – with another update. In the mean time, my priority is on resting, doing only a tiny bit of screen work each day, and preparing for my move to Sydney (October 1st). Thanks everyone, and see you all soon.
