And yes:

The time on that previous post - and this one - is correct. I am awake and at keyboard before 5 am. It’s something to do with a cracking ear infection making sleep nigh on impossible and a total waste of time while I wait for the painkillers to start to do something that will hopefully let me get at least a doze in before I have to call the doctor’s in the morning.

Oh yes, I am having fun right now.
