Agreed.  :-)

To my knowledge, VC is not in a broken state now.  Stefan fixed one of
the blocker bugs yesterday, probably while I was flat on my back and
hooked up to a heart monitor, and I got the other one this morning.

I am mostly recovered, though I am still in some pain through having
strained some back muscles during the more violent nausea episodes.  Trust
me when I say you do not want this crap to happen to you...
