Teresa Nielsen Hayden, our fantastic comment moderator, took a funny turn on Thursday night; which turned out to have been a very unfunny (but thankfully minor) heart attack. She's doing well, recovering and comfortable, if bored, while awaiting some more test results. A few of you have written to us to get updates -- Teresa's husband Patrick has a quick update on Making Light:
Meanwhile, is she okay? Sure; mostly bored. Lutheran Medical Center is a good hospital, but they’re still a hospital, all hurry-up-and-wait, vagueness about what to expect next, and long delays, particularly over a weekend.

She does have a net connection, but don’t count on her for instant responses to inquiries; for the moment, anything urgent should probably be bounced to me.
Get well soon, Teresa -- we couldn't do this without you!
Either a heart attack, or a Greek of the same name
Update: On the one hand, they're saying the stress test was positive. On the other hand, they're letting me out of here! Yaaaaay! Home! (Also, no more having to follow comment threads on my BlackBerry.)
Thank you all for your great kindness. (tnh)

If your office works at all, it uses Microsoft Office. Those icons for Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook are as familiar around some workplaces as the coffee machine. So familiar, in fact, that they get taken for granted – and rarely used to their full potential. Whether you need a crash course in the essential tools […]
