I stopped at the Caribou coffee across from the office this morning. Along with a fancy coffee I purchased a low-fat cranberry orange scone. It was the driest morning breakfast treat ever.
I Took Me An Hour To Make My Two Portable Devices To Change Their Time By An Hour
In the computer world nothing seems to be as easy as it should be. Want to update your Windows based PDA or phone so that it can display the proper time? It’s
simple a true pain in the ass.
First you need to make sure that you PC is up to date, which may or may not require you to download a Windows Genuine Advantage check.
Then, you need to determine how you are syncing your device so that you can download the proper Daylight Savings Time patch for your syncing software.
Then, if you are not running the latest edition of ActiveSync you need to update that as well….
Finally you can attach your device and download the update for your specific device.
[Update @9:05am]: Fucking great! I just found out that all of my Outlook appointments in my PDA have been moved ahead an hour when I updated my software last night. Hey Congress, can we please leave the fucking time change alone from now on?
Has Goodwill Gotten Too Big For Its Britches?
Back in August Goodwill closed its East Lake store and donation center. I was miffed because I lost my neighborhood thrifting store, but was confused because so many people in my area still required their services for basic needs.
Yesterday I needed to kill some time in Sandy Springs after running the errands I needed to finish so I did something not seen often in Sandy Springs — walking. As I walked over to the Target on Johnson Ferry I noticed that Goodwill has a fancy new(?) location in the old A&P store next to Target. That rent certainly can’t be cheap! The margins made on the items they get for free must be pretty sweet. I think I need to find a more deserving charity for my next donation.

I know this is a cliche shot, but I thought it wasn’t bad.
CD Pick Of The Week
It’s not that I haven’t been checking the new release schedule lately, it’s that I’ve been completely unimpressed. I’m going to admit something here. So far I think that 2007 has been a lousy year for new releases. I know it’s only March, but the end of this month does signal the end of the year’s first quarter.
I think even Sirius Channel 26 (Left Of Center) agrees with me. Of the four songs I’ve heard thus far only one has been from this year (The Apples In Stereo) while the other three were from indie icons Sonic Youth, Pixies, and Sebadoh.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – lost
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Pixies — “Velouria”
Website Of The Day – Swamii is the newest “What’s New” search engine. I’m not convinced, but ymmv.
Exercise (b)Log – none. Wasn’t I supposed to do sit-ups / push-ups? Yes, but I forgot.
1) Lose two pounds. (starting weight ~205 lbs?)
2) Run no fewer than thirty miles.
3) Do twenty push-ups and fifty sit-ups at on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays.
4) Finish February’s book and read at least one more.
5) Take Marta to work at least ten times.
6) File my Income Taxes.
7) Wear “nicer” clothes to work at least one day a week.
