A quick note on comments, emails etc
Just so people are aware, I’m currently not particularly well, and when I’m not well I have to prioritise stuff according to how much or how little it stresses me. Writing actually relieves my stress, so expect me to be positively logorrhoeic here over the next few weeks, but other forms of internet activity (Twitter, email, comments threads and so on) can very quickly raise my blood pressure, and that even goes for people I like.
So I’m very deliberately limiting myself to a two-hour period of the day, in the morning, where I’m allowing myself to take part in Twitter, Facebook, blog comments (including this blog’s comment threads) and personal emails. I currently owe Richard Flowers, Plok and my uncle all at least two long emails each, which will take up most of the next few days’ internet socialising time, so if I don’t respond to your email, comment or @reply, please, *please* don’t think I’m being rude, or that I’m ignoring you. I’ll try to get around to everything, but it’ll take longer than it otherwise would (and I’m not great at that stuff at the best of times).
