Back At It

Last modified on April 9th, 2008

Back at it again. Now that the Junos are over, I’m basically full swing back into the daily grind. I have an interesting optimization problem at work that I’ll write about at some point (from the perspective of how to speed up compilation of a project), but other than that, it’s just business as usual.

I started getting a tickle in my throat yesterday which has somehow exploded into a full-on sore throat today. So, while I’m at work, I feel like I’m on the verge of getting sick. It’s most likely related to being on a few crowded planes and shaking hands with tons of new people last weekend, and I’m hopeful it passes. I’m going to use this weekend as a chance to catch up on sleep and put my body back on schedule.

I’ve been working on a few projects on the side, one of which involves the homeless community in Vancouver. While not for certain, we might have something to show regarding it next week. So, I’ll keep everyone in the loop.

And finally, thanks to all of the people who sent me some link love on my birthday.

    *Most definitely* keep me in the loop. I’m writing a substantially large blog post on the topic of homelessness policy in Vancouver, so it’d be cool to link to whatever you’re thinking about (it *must* be a great idea, I am sure!)

    Hope you had a good birthday (I did drop a comment wishing you happy b’day!)

    swing into Shoppers Drug Mart and pick up these throat lozenges called Cold Eeze. They have the highest zinc content(which repairs a sore throat my adding nutrients to the mucus membrane)as well as some other supportive nutrients that help your immune system. They are a tad pricey at $7 for 18 lozenges, but mark my words, suck on 6 of them tonight, and some tomorrow and your sore throat should be gone. Oh, and some Cold FX thrown in the mix wouldn’t hurt either. 🙂
