I need a way to organize my time while at work. I’m constantly thinking there is something I should be doing, and actually having ten things I must do, and only getting to a couple because I can’t prioritize.
I used to use Outlook to do this, both here and before at Cypress Grove. I changed to Thunderbird both at work and at home for various reasons; I especially liked TBird’s spam filters. But I lost the TO DO list.
Konfabulator (pictured above; calendar and NH weather on my desktop) comes with a TO DO list, but I find it needlessly ugly (ooooo 3D ooooo). I want one like Outlook. I’ll keep looking.
When I find one, maybe I can stop hating myself for not getting to things I need to do.
This is an interesting little web page (requires IE) that scans your hardware and tells you how well it could play any of a number of games.
My work computer can play EQ, it says, but WoW is a no-no.

I just flashed back to Antonica near Thundering Steppes. Why does that place hold memories… why does any place in any virtual world bring me back. Running to Cotswold at bard speed in DAoC; exploring the mysteries of the Misty Thicket in EQ; relaxing among the autumn leaves in the forest outside San D'Oria in FFXI.
I'm trying to think of one for WoW, and I guess it would be that inn in Ashenvale where Sylvanar and I logged off for the last time in Beta.
Here's a nice definitions of the different Fantasy Sub-Genres.
Lord of the Rings is an obvious influence on EverQuest. I would count The Worm Ouroborous by E. R. Eddison a perfect example of the influences that led to Warcraft.
A very nice look into the people behind the avatars in Asian gaming.

Well, I guess that's something at least.
Angry with myself for not getting things done today. However, I did write a ASP page for our Saturday Sale results. It came out pretty well, but I had a lot of trouble with the connection string. In the end, I just copied the table into a place IIS could find it. I'll try to find a better solution when Felix comes back.
Tonight is a CE off night, so I should probably take this time to do some shopping and clean the house a little. I know Nostromo is getting tired of canned food. I'll probably play WoW when I sit down to game. I don't know if I can face the CE officers yet, after what happened yesterday.
I really need to get the following things done ASAP: find out if my new credit card arrived; call the repair shop so I can bring the car in for an estimate, order new checks, and pay the electric bill.
