How long does it take to get a cold from someone?

On March 1st I went to my doctor to have a biopsy done on a place on top of my head.  I also had him remove a large thing on top of my shoulder.  I will get the report on the biopsy in 4 or 5 days.  The doctor said he is 95% sure it will come back as cancer.

The doctor had symptoms of a cold.  I asked if had a cold.  He said no.
Today I have a cold.  I have a runny nose, scratchy throat, and a fever now.  

So I looked up “How long does it take to get a cold from someone?” 

You will typically begin to notice symptoms, such as a runny or stuffed-up nose, coughing or a scratchy throat about two or three days after you become infected with the virus that causes the common cold. Other symptoms of the common coldcan include: sneezing, a fever, headaches, watery eyes and fatigue.

I setup a bulletin board system called Howard's Notebook in 1982. People connected at 300 baud. Upgrades and new things were done until 1995 when the world wide web was invented. Howard's Notebook was then moved to the web and is still in operation. I been blogging since 1982! I had one of the first webcams online.
