Reduced posting over next few days

Hi folks, as I had a series of minor operations yesterday at Inverclyde Royal Hospital on my left hand, right arm and right shoulder, there will be a likely reduction in my posting over the next few days, as having ten stitches to contend with is making typing a little awkward!

I was actually out canvassing last night for the forthcoming election as soon as I got out of hospital (I can hold clipboards and leaflets etc!), it's just repetitive typing that hurts a wee bit, but I will do my best to keep things up to date, even if that means just one liners for posts - normal service will hopefully resume soon!

  1. Hope you recover quickly and well Chris, but be kind to yourself.

  2. Get well soon, remember not to over tax yourself.

    Maybe it's a good time to review a few of the speech recognition systems.

  3. Take good care of yourself, wishing you a quick and healthy recovery.
