Wires sticking out

So earlier this week, a mixture of migraine, sickness and deep pain in the right side of the chest sent me to the doctors. Doctors messed around for a while then sent me on the hospital for emergency surgery.

The excellent surgical (& nursing) staff found and (sort of) fixed the problem, and now i'm in recovery with a hole at the side of my chest.

Unfortunately, i don't have much movement in my right arm at the moment, so anyone expecting emails etc, please be patient, i haven't been ignoring you :-).

ps. This is brought to you in association with painkillers, heavy antibiotics & a nokia e65...please excuse if it doesn't make sense!

With a few parts changed, you will soon be better than ever! ;) How is your E65, I'm considering buying one or the new E51. Is the wifi usable on normal websites?

Thanks everyone, I am still alive, and have begun working on my projects again (albeit a bit slowly).

@awn user: Just drag and drop application icons from the main menu or from nautilus (go to /usr/share/applications).

Good to see you're posting again Neil! I miss reading about your great open source development.

I can see from your January desktop that you've got NowPlaying running. Do you know if it works with Quod Libet? Is it connected to the Last.fm account or something?
