Infocused Unsanity

Don’t expect ‘wild & crazy’ from this post – it’s just a commentary on my observations of my own current state of mind. The last couple days at work have been odd, with my supervisor (I hate to call her my boss, as she very rarely gave me instructions of what to do) now gone, and my closest equivalent a 3-hour drive away. I had a chance to take over her office, but I consider it too far off the physical path to our production environment, making it impractical, in my estimation. So I still share a small office with our operations manager, and while I would relish the potential solitude, I think this location is better for the work I actually need to do.

Technology! Since it appears that I’ll be doing the majority of this blog, moving forward, from my Treo, I guess it makes sense to acknowledge the news in the handheld arena. Obviously, the new iPhone from Apple adds many needed and significant features, and the price has to have a lot of current owners seeing red, but I wonder if even that will be enough. The competition is heating up, and Apple is partially to blame, for introducing it originally without several killer features and at an astronomical price – they gave the competition too easy a bar to clear, and now the 2.0 iPhone is almost in a position to play catch-up. Yes, Apple changed the smartphone landscape, but in a way, they gave too many others access to the seedlings, as well. My Treo is now far behind the curve, I realize, but for what I want, it’s 90% there, needing only a decent camera to remain a champeen. C’mon, Palm, why the blinders?

Are They Really That Stupid?

Okay, I’m a Republican, but there’s no way I’ll vote for Bush or anyone I even remotely think will continue his ‘policies’ (if you can call the self-serving idiocy of the last 7 years “policy!”). And when it comes to self-service, I think Hillary doesn’t have anything to learn from W! So that leaves Obama.

Sure, he may lack experience – and he wouldn’t be the last; if ‘experience’ like the current administration is a gauge, however, give me the New Guy. Read the rest of this entry »

Kicking and Screaming!

.. which is how I now come into the high-tech phase of blogging. I figure if I ever expect to make use of this blog, it has to be through spontaneous action, not through planning and the unlikelihood that I will actually remember to do it. And since I'm somewhat addicted to my Treos (now on my third, a used 680 that I hope is less prone to my dropping and killing it!), this is a way to make at least semi-productive use of its highly practical and easy-to-use keyboard. Plus, it means I can post even when my power goes out, as it just did …

Well, obviously, not much to report, as I await the rebooting of my equipment. Yes, it's true – "The Big Bang Theory" is hideously close to my own life, it seems. At least I can laugh with it, as well as at it.
