12 days

In 12 days, I will leave for France. I prepare myself in some way a little bit each day. I am particularly careful about making sure I have all the computer files I want, and that they are organized the way I want. I probably won’t want to spend a lot of time in France diagnosing computer problems.

Speaking of which, I noticed that my laptop was rather noisy today. The culprit? An M$ special, of course. Outlook 2003 was running at 100% CPU, and doing nothing useful of course. I am pondering the switch to Mozilla Thunderbird for email instead. I am a happy user of Gmail, but I’m a bit hesitant to rely entirely on a web-based e-mail solution. I’ll be using wireless access mostly in France, and my experience is that wireless can be unreliable when shared when others. But perhaps that’s only because I am used to UNBSJ’s wireless network which is crap anyway.

Today was a good day at work. I went in for a couple hours because today was the last day for one of my coworkers, and a bunch of us went out to lunch to wish her well. She’ll be missed.

And that’s it for my first real blog entry. Don’t hesitate to leave some comments!
