@antedeluvian: ...I am sure the airline will want compensation for changing the ticket...

That is a stumbling block...

@antedelivian: ...you are ascribing a degree of accuracy to medical diagnosis which I don't think exists...

I think it will exist in the not-so-distant future

@zeeglen: Wonder how many others from that flight are also in as miserable a state?

The doctor says it's highly contageous ... so I'm assuming a bunch!

@Elizabeth: The other thing that I would think useful is wearing a mask.

I've thought about this -- but one does look like a bit of a plonker while doing so -- plus everyome else would think you were the one who as sick...

@Elizabeth: In my experience, zinc appears to be helpful in reducing the length and severity of symptoms...

I don't usually take vitamins and stuff (I have an enduring belief that beer and bacon provide all the nutrients necessary to live a full and happy life), but for my next trip I plan on starting taking vitamin C and zink about a week before Ileave and keeping it up for a week after I return.

I cannot wait for the time that they can perform real-time health checks at airports

That won't protect you from aircraft food though. I got food poisoning once. I spent the day in London hugging a toilet bowl.

I was existing China hosting a bug I had caught and was scanned with the pyrometer on the forehead.  As I stood there with the sweats, I hoped they did not ban me from entering Hong Kong and my flight home.  They let me in - very poor screening if you ask me.

At least you can be thankful that you weren't affected until the rerturn trip. Fortunately, it has been extremely rare that I have contracted some sort of malady while travelling.  It just seems to make it that much worse if you can't snuggle in your own bed to recuperate.  

If you had come down with this on the way to Brazil it could have been really tough making your presentation.

I hope you're feeling better by now.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
