So I got that one wrong.
Appears a habit.
http://thefatguy.com/ a blog of long standing, the owner of which has lived rather an interesting life and had the temerity to shoot a computer hard drive square in its little gizzard reports on his battle with cancer.
He has undertaken chronologically detailing his trials and tribulations – not with his life thoughts, but with the system as it absorbs him for treatment. Over the last few visits to the medical mills I’ve developed an attitude of “Which is worse?” following the writings.
