Posting Hazardous To Your Health

"A WEST NYACK, N.Y. MAN was found dead at his computer apparently the victim of trying to keep up with too many professional forums. Childress H. Wanamaker, 54, an account executive at a New York-based new media company, died of starvation according to the West Nyack coroner's office. Wanamaker's emaciated body was found by Loraine, his wife of 26 years, who told MediaPost she had been bringing her husband meals on plastic trays for weeks, but that he never took the time to eat them. "

Somebody should check on John Galt. Do they have Meals on Wheels in Illinois?

Re: Posting Hazardous To Your Health

About once a week I get "are you gonna be on that thing all morning or are you going to turn it off and fix something ?!?"

No chance of starvation though, I'm only about six feet from the kitchen...
