Addiction LXXVII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

At home 3 to 5 tabs give or take.
At work on monitor 1, I'll have 5 to 8 on IE, plus 3 POS screens, monitor 2, 5 to 10 on Chrome, plus 1 POS screens. It really depends on how many nightmares I'm dealing with.

I do three monitors at work, and wish I had more. The laptop can only drive three, though.

Hey @BillyD I hope your headache is better today.

Fun Fact: If you call for a neurology appointment around here, as a new patient, they will see you in 3-4 months. That's not very satisfying for someone who has an acute need. It has forced many of us primary care docs to do much of the initial work that neurology does. Sad!

Is that a bad thing?

Do you send difficult headache patients to Steve Silberstein’s clinic at Jefferson? They are very good.

Yes. But that's probably a 9-12 month wait.

This time of year, I have about 8 tabs open. But two of them are epidemiological influenza trackers (one from CDC and one from my state health dept) so typically I only have 5 or 6 open.

No. Weekly. But I am too lazy to make bookmarks, it's easier to just keep those tabs opened.

Speaking of non-substantive posts, I am closing in on 30K and expect to hit it within a month. Any suggestions on how to commemorate this?

I don't use bookmarks anymore. I have the sites I visit regularly memorized and my browser auto-completes most of them so I just have to type the first couple of letters.

Post about it on the World Wide Web.

And this raises the question of why we post when we have nothing to say. I liken it to grooming behavior among social apes, but I might be wrong.
