I apologize to the folks that come to tuxmachines looking for the latest in linux and open source news and reviews for not updating the site the passed coupla days. I've been sicker than I've ever been in my life.
No need for the gory details and grossing everybody out, but let's just say the bugs and viruses going around are getting more and more virulent. I'm just waiting for the bug to come along that's gonna wipe us all out.
I had a cold or the flu in November that lasted 3 weeks and it was the worst cold (or flu) I'd ever had.
So, with all the threats hanging over humans' heads: climate change, pole shift, nuclear/terrorist threats, etc; I bet it'll be a mircoscopic entity that does us in.
