Hello friends. This is a personal update on me, Mr. Krystal, the shadowy figure who updates your favorite Krystal-related website. I know you've noticed I haven't posted lately. And while I normally would just try and continue posting as if nothing happened (because people hate blog-apology-filler), this time is a bit special.
Long story short, as some of you know, I've been having serious problems with my wrists and hands for a while, probably from typing too much. My day job is programming. Combined with this site and others, that's a lot of typing, which hasn't helped my condition. Fortunately, it is not carpal tunnel syndrome, but instead a related syndrome for the ulnar nerves (which controls the pinkie finger and part of the ring finger, and is what is commonly called the "funny bone" in the elbow). Unfortunately, in the past few months I've been trying just about every type of treatment available for my specific problem with little to no success, and the problem is slowly worsening. That leaves surgery as my only option for now.
It is a very safe procedure, though it might not actually help my symptoms (fingers crossed). However the surgery means I will lose the ability to use one of my arms for a couple days, followed by two weeks of soreness and pain. I'm going to take off time from work to recover and avoid typing, so that also means I won't be able to do much site updating either.
So if I can't type much, I thought what I might do instead is some live video chats with you, the fans of the site. I'll have a lot of time to kill without using my arms, and I haven't done a podcast in forever. What do you guys think? Would you want to hang out online and let me respond to questions or talk about Krystal and Star Fox stuff? Respond in the comments if you are interested and what you'd want me to talk about. Whatever we do, I'll record it and post it permanently to YouTube, so even if you can't make it live, you can still watch.
