I did not touch a computer yesterday!

It is now past midnight, so I can pass on the word that I did not operate a computer on Saturday, February 19, 2011.  Due to the Flu and a severely sprained knee, I did not touch a computer for a whole day.  The fact that I am posting this is an indication of how rare this is.  Of course I come back to Windows updates adn other issues, welcome back!
