so, where does all that pain come from?
Shit. Major pain in shoulder this morning leads me to believe that I may have become a bit exuberant at the pool yesterday. My neck feels like someone has tried to hang me; hang on, maybe they did. These are hard and fast times after all.
More 'subtle' pursuits today. We will try one day on, one day off to slowly build up the muscles that have been so unused over the last twelve weeks. What an insanely long time to not use something - and I wonder why it hurts when I actually get it going again.
web aversion strikes
As per the holiday resolution not to spend half my life on the web, sitting here, wasting time, wasting sunshine, wasting away, I find early in the day a complete disenchantment with all things 'web'. Sick of the same old sites, sick of Web 2, bored with the self styled experts telling me what I should be doing. Resolution eventually boots in subliminally. I can live with that. Out of the chair and into the lounge chair, back to an old James Ellroy novel I was re-reading. Good stuff.
but, a few updates to favorite apps anyway
The afternoon was spent catching up on the favorite apps - the portable stuff - portable AbiWord - brilliant thing, runs off a USB stick, or CD, and Gaim, equally brilliant, runs the same way. The advantage of Gaim is that it allows me to have all my IM's: IRC, ICQ, Yahoo, Jabber, etc, in the one application.
These are the things that make the net worthwhile for me again; stuff I can carry around on a USB stick and plug into whenever I feel the need.
One thing to come of the holiday is the realization that I have too many projects going all at once. Time, I think, to slim the total done; get into the ones that matter. Action it - anytime now.
