Hard at work kayaking down the Waikato

About

Bryce Utting: computer hack, film buff, Usenet old fart, failed HCI theorist, and alarmingly amateur musician. Finally back home in Hamilton: home of the University of Waikato, the McGillicuddy Serious Party, the Big Muffin Serious Band, the Bastard Operator From Hell (also here and here), and The Rocky Horror Show. Not to mention a strong claim on Split Enz.

I've weathered the storms of chronic daily headache and chronic fatigue since early 1995. I'm still alive, and have been working 20 hour weeks since '99. Which is a pretty good result all told, but I'd be a lot happier if I was bright and bouncy for more of the week and if I wasn't putting alarming amounts of analgesics through my liver every day.

My beliefs (not that they come up that often on Usenet) are mostly unaltered by this, which seems to come as a surprise to many.

Quality chocolate, large sums of money, and tonewheel Hammonds (um, and lessons) are always welcome:
