But thanks for asking.
I am, however, extremely busy, because my company has to meet deadlines, I have to take exams between now and Christmas to get my MA degree, I've got a publisher breathing down my neck about a deadline for the revised edition of my book on internet research, and on top of that, I got infected with a nasty virus about two weeks ago which resulted in rather annoying problems with my left arm (I'll spare you the details; suffice it to say it's finally healing now - thank you, pharmaceutical companies and Dr. Boyraz - yes, I've got a Turkish GP and she rules). The latter wasn't just highly unpleasant in terms of pain, it also took up a lot of time I didn't have to begin with.
I'll stop my whining now. But if you were wondering why I've been a tad quiet, this is why.
Update 22.37: I'm not too busy though to express my happiness about three things: the way president Bush has been straightforward about mistakes that have been made; the very likely adoption of the McCain Amendment, and the extremely high turnout in today's elections in Iraq. Today was a good day for freedom.
