Quitting time is coming. I can’t wait. I don’t intend to skip out early, in fact I plan on working late. I just happen to prefer the office when nobody else is around and I can concentrate. Right now I can hear three or four different conversations going on, phones ringing, faxes emitting snarls of white noise, printers humming and all the other distractions. It drives me nuts because I am trying to concentrate.

Sorry, I didn’t mean to vent. I guess I am just a misanthrope at heart.


It’s been a busy week at work. Things are in full swing and I think I am starting to fall behind in my tasks. I will endeavour to persevere though.

I’ve been looking at OddPost, a cool web based email client that sure pushes the limit of explorer. My main interest in this email service is that fact that Pacificare’s web filtering proxy server doesn’t block this address yet, like it does for Yahoo mail and the other free portal sites.

Oh, and I am still contemplating that Alpha computer. Maybe in a few months though.


Apparently this interface does not work through the magic of iCab, my lightweight browser of choice for my Mac. Oh well. It works in IE 5.5 on my PC – Nothing like catering to the masses. Baloney tastes just fine too, but I don’t have to like it.


I trashed my abortive attempts at a blog on netPCI. It just wasn’t working out for me man. I suppose I could just link from that site to this one, but that’s a pain.

I find myself contemplating DEC Alpha workstations on eBay. This is a dangerous hobby – I could end up with a supercomputer before you know it.


I spent a fair amount of time the last few days tinkering with my friend Dianne’s blogger template. She is writing a book and wanted a page on the web describing her and her work in progress. Check it out here. I think it looks pretty cool. I scaled the pictures and placed them inside the template. Maybe I will edit this page’s template as well.


Still no word from PCI about the ftp access. I guess I will just have to switch to another system – or maybe another host for my web page
