As the domain which hosted it expires this week I've decided it's time to wind down my policy of open sourcing Opus, the content management system (CMS) that powers this web site and lots of our other web sites and that seems like a good time to talk a bit about how its history.  read more ...

So the letter came. My current favourite doctor at Nairn, Dr Lee Smith, got a copy before me and the recommendation is to up the dose by 300mg at a time, waiting at least 2 weeks between increases until I reach a maximum dose of 1500mg twice a day, experience "intolerable side effects", or become seizure free.  read more ...
