Advances on many fronts

A semi-busy day at work today. Just waiting for co-workers to break up some big jobs to spread the work around and so thought I'd take a minute to jot down a thought or two.

Found today from the site. Apple is beta-testing access to their mail system over the web and seem to have built a very robust client.

I use them on the road during long drives as well.) Finally got a bag with a new color different than aqua. Aqua has to go. This bag has pink. I could live with pink. Purple rules, though. Go purple!

  • Not so boring, actually

    I had desperate fears that work tonight would be dead, dead, dead. As it turns out, there's about 800 pages of work due by 1:00 a.m. Sunday morning,…
