I hope everyone has been well lately. I've been around brookly here and there. Working, sleeping, just.. I dunno being. I got a few parking tickets? I'm sorta at a loss for typing today, I've been sleeping in a lot and I can't say it helps me think.
So I'm going to go and clean out that small list of things I want to put somewhere but never managed to put anywhere so it ended up in my inbox, or in a text file on my desktop. My virtual workspace is looking a lot like my actual workspace and that's never good. Every so often (usually when I'm going to a job - but sometimes its when the mess is too much) I stick everything on my desktop into a folder to go through later. Unfortionatly out of sight == out of mind, I have 4 levels of "cleanup" folders.
I've got 5 rsvps for my birthday so far, check your email people. Or just call me I'm friendly.

As a former windows power user who transitioned completely only about a year ago, let me offer this advice:
Pick up an ubuntu cd, give it a partition, and use it more than the two minutes it takes to conclude it's not windows. Seriously. Forget windows is even there for a week. Pretend someone stole your old computer and all they left you with is this weird piece of shit doppelganger that sorta looks like your old pc, but everything's just a little "off." Accept the fact transitions are not always easy, and give this doppelganger a week of your computing life. Then go back to windows. And make sure you have some clean clothes handy, because you're going to need a shower afterward.

That's all I I'm going to post right now.
