    I've been kind of fading away lately I have to admit. I blame Triple A Axis&Allies computer game, and illram for being so damn good at it. Also the lesswrong website. Anyway, I expect to keep poking my nose in every few weeks at least; more if there's a lull in my other addictions.

    Hi Ralph. It's April Fools' role madness, and everyone wants to look like me.

    Well, I didn't get any messages asking me where I was, so I can only assume that no one noticed I was gone. I spent two and a weeks enjoying the hospitality of the NHS, waiting for (and then receiving and recovering from) lung surgery for a second pneumathorax.

    Don't stress at no one noticing at the time, thats life. I'm sure there's heaps of us wishing you well now that we know what happened. I'd hate to think you'd let it worry you.

    Get better asap champ :)

    Two weeks at the mercy of the NHS! That's a long time. Just be grateful they haven't killed you yet.

    How was it? Did you get plenty of visitors? How much weight have you lost?

    It was surprisingly dull. I enjoyed the regular care, but the sleeping was dreadful and I didn't see as many people as I'd wished. I think I even gained a pound (my weight kept hopping around the 51 kg mark). I did manage to get through 2000 pages of books whilst I was gone though!

    I had the same surgery (keyhole, right?) for the same problem in December.

    Glad to hear you're OK!

    That drain in the side is a real <--Female Dog-->, isn't it?

    EDIT: Oh, and glad to see you around to, RRW! :wavey:

    ...I wish I could just sit and read 2000 pages without working. I'm struggling to keep up 30/day.

    Glad to hear you aren't dead! Actually, welcome back to a lot of old faces!
