Just Playin’ the Game

January 24, 2001

Oh today was busy…..First

up, my Drs appt was good, my numbers have been normal for the past week and

my blood pressure is great (I’ve never had problems with it). I also lost a

pound. Yes, 1 measly pound. But then again, I’ve been eating less portions but

more meals. My exercise has been lax since I have a sore foot. 

Bob, the Twinhead

laptop, doesn’t like to connect to NetZero. I think I’m just going to install

95b, to speed it up and see if that corrects the problem(s). If not, the modem/ether

card shall be installed. I setup a RAM disk on it last night and that seemed

to speed it up. But then again, if I setup a 150mb swap file on any system it

would speed it up. 

I ran out of room

on my Blue & White G3 at work. Looked around and I have a folder of event

ads that is 3gb(!!!!). Some how I forget that I have a CD-R attached to the

machine. I started to archive the folders, make notes of what’s on them, copy

to CD-R, check the files, then delete the originals off of the Hard Disk. I’m

going to leave my graphics folder, I use the images on there daily and I really

don’t feel like pulling out a CD when I need to update a logo file. 

I finally got back

online at work, and had a grand total of 75 messages in my box. The fiber transceiver

wasn’t working for my hub and they had to get a replacement. It’s nice to be

able to update things that should have been updated last week :P. 

My meeting with

the consultant and their graphic artist went well and was productive. The artist

had a nice new G4 with the new Keyboards and Mice. He was using Photoshop 6,

it seems to have a better interface than 5. As soon as the budget shapes up

around here, it will be on my list. Well, that and a memory upgrade, HD upgrade,

MacOS update, maybe a g4 addon……

I’m starting to

work on a new site, and my first meeting tomorrow will be with the people who

want the site, a writer and myself. It will be a recruitment website for physicians.

My involvement will be as a project manager, I’ll design the pages and setup

the text and information like I want. The recruiters and the CEO will look at

it and see what they think. I have some ideas, but I haven’t been able to get

anything together since my connection here has been down. 

Tomorrow is not

going to be very productive, my newfound energy better be ready to run between

meetings. Later…..
