Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2005 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Yesterday I was well enough to go to work, where I got hit by a barrage of jerkitude by customers. Maybe that lowered my immune system's defenses, because I woke up today with a relapse and stayed home. I've been doing my job for two years and it's never seemed an immediate threat to my health before. Time for a change.
