More Recovery Needed

I have the primary computer running again, restored from the clone I took just before going to Australia. I didn't change many files during that trip (other than pictures and video, which I could read off the non-booting drive), and thus don't appear to have lost anything of importance. I'm just glad that the computer waited until the last day of the trip before deciding not to boot, because it would have been rather more inconvenient if it had failed sooner.

I spent most of today sleeping, and not just due to jet lag. The cold I caught in Australia is really bad and not showing signs of improving. My head is full of cotton and I continue to cough a lot. I'm too sick to go to BASFA tonight, and I'm going to see about working from home tomorrow for my first day back from "vacation" lest I cough germs all over the office.

I'd write more, but I'm really tired and will be going to bed again soon. I had great ideas of all of the things I'd get done on my "day off" today, but none of them happened. Processing videos taken at A4 is going to take much longer than I thought. And to be honest, I'm still very unhappy about the backroom politics that ignored the voice of the electorate and effectively pulled the plug on a bunch of work on which I put a lot of effort. I just hope that the members of WSFS remember who ignored them the next time they get a chance to say something about it next August in Reno.
