Take a vacation John Hawks. Please. You’re hurting my brain.

John Hawks, professor of paleoanthropology, writes one of my favorite blogs. He’s prolific. A recent vacation meant I’d fallen over 100 posts behind.

Today, a Bloglines UI flaw meant I accidentally displayed his past 100 posts. This is an unrecoverable error, I need to either scan them or give up on reading ‘em.

I could not let them vanish – I had to scan and mark those for future reading.

Mistake.

Too much knowledge … brain hurting … overload …

Stop John.

Take a vacation so I can catch up. My brain hurts.

Thanks for the kind words, John!

The switch to the new blogging platform put a few older things back on the top of the feed, and then there are the new Instapundit-style posts, which are really just links. It's not so bad...

I'm a great fan John. Please post a note on the blog if you're ever giving a lecture in the Twin Cities. I'm adjunct faculty at the U of MN, so I can crash any lectures you might give there ...
