Those who follow [ profile] grahamsleight on Twitter will already be aware of this, but: he took a tumble while getting off his train this morning, and his broken his leg. He's now in ward T1 at University College Hospital (first floor, and -- use this information wisely -- bedside phone number apparently 07081 396234), where he is likely to be staying for a couple of days. He reports that visitors are very welcome, except between noon and 2pm. His iPhone battery is low, but so far as I can tell his spirits are good, considering.

EDIT: Further update here.

Thanks. More importantly, what do you think of the new Who logo?

I need to see some eps to gain a more favorable Pavlovian response.

Oh no. I was going to tell him to see a doctor in case, but didn't want to come across all Jewish mother. I hope it heals quickly.

Clearly the kindest thing someone could do for him is bring him an iPhone power cable!

Dear Graham,

Hello...loyal follower from suburban DC, Brenda, here...Just heard about your fall and hospitalization. So sorry!

I've had my turn at hospital stays. Here is sage advice: bust out of there as soon as possible! Hire a goon squad to assist you, if necessary. Trust me, Graham, the longer that you stay there, the worse the food and care become. Also, the walls move in, towards you, constantly, at a rate of, say, about 2 inches per minute. You will begin to feel cramped and then suffer breathing difficulties as your finite space further constricts.

Your sanity will be judged suspect in no time, as well meaning nurses and visitors begin to doubt your judgment.("Why all the complaints? He seemed like such a nice chap at first.")

Get back on Twitter as soon as you are able. I do enjoy your way with words. I also love your photographs of London.

Brenda Elthon

Also, do you know his bed number at the hospital? Skype can't dial that direct number, and apparently the switchboard operators are unable to look up patients by name.

EDIT: Ah, they found him. Bed 14 "at the moment". There was some nonsense about making him walk down the hall (!) to get to the ward phone, at which point I decided I'd go back to texting/Twitter.

Yes, they moved me from one bed to another so the number Niall gives no
longer applies. Don't have a replacement yet but my cellphone does now work.

The big thing that people are upset about is that while you can opt-out of cross-posting your own enteirs and comments to your own facebook or twitter account, you currently can NOT opt-out of readers cross-posting their own comments on your journal, including friends-locked posts.Although LJ claims to be working on the problem and coming up with a solution, this whole thing seems such a profound level of poor judgement that I don't feel confident that they won't do something equally boneheaded in the future and compromise my locked posts while I'm not looking.Also, if they were so very concerned about the issue, they would have disabled the feature until they come up with a fix for it.So yeah. I've basically run the script to make all of my posts private until I migrate elsewhere.
