My reduced online activity over the last few weeks

Posted by Sally Cummings on Sunday, May 31, 2009,

No, I haven't forgotten my blog, although it's been quite a while since I updated. My tale of woe follows...

First there was my shoulder injury. Although it's feeling heaps better now, it still tends to feel sore at the end of a long day on the computer. So my optimism about it being a short-term injury was slightly misplaced. I would now say that it appears to be a result of over-use, possibly/probably mouse-related.

Posted by Sally Cummings on Saturday, May 9, 2009,
