Palmwritten ...

Being in front of a computer isn't really good for productivity. Is it the fault of CRT monitors? Big fans? Either way, a decent sofa and a Palm seems to beat a computer every time. They just seem to shatter much concentration by just being there. Too much too easily available, should practise more restraint in usage ... Maybe a better chair could help too?

Defragmenting Terminus' hard drives while writing this. Some of them were in quite desperate need for it ... Seems that the XP defragmenter is a bit faster than the old Win 98 one, especially on NTFS partitions. And the displays of defragmentation before and after are very nice as well, it's always fun to compare ...

In other news I'm still attempting to come up with a good subject for the five week report. Need to have a general idea by Thursday, but it feels like another week or two wouldn't hurt ... Actually, I've listed a bunch of ideas, but I just can't seem to decide on anything ... Typical me of course.

It's popular to be ill right now, people around me are or have recently been ill in alarming numbers. I started feeling like my turn was coming while in school, but now that I'm home again it seems to have passed, so maybe it was just hypochondria caused by hearing others sneeze and cough too much :-) ... We'll see, would be quite amazing to escape when so many others are affected. I'm working this weekend too, so it'd better not strike then ...
