not much [Jul. 13th, 2006|11:29 pm]
[Tags|, , ]

Nothing much to report in my life. Things are fine, kinda boring. Mostly catching up from working way too much the last week or so.

Board games at Tom's tonight. We played Fearsome Floors, and it takes a LOT longer with six people who are actually thinking about strategy. (Last time, it was very late and we all played kind of haphazardly.)

My workshop at the beginning of the week went well. It was kind of a pain to have to catch the bus early enough to show up at 8:30, but the S bus goes right by the hotel it was at, at least.

Work is back to busy, but not stressful. I'm getting good at saying "yes, I can do that, but not until next week" to keep things from getting overwhelming. Hooray for having work that's mostly without built-in deadlines.

My coworkers are totally amazed by my super-ergonomic Kinesis keyboard.

What other folks said. I don't really know any places to try them out, although we could probably arrange something where you could dink around with my kinesis for a little bit and see what you think.

Don't forget the mouse! Mice are evil. I'm much happier using a trackball.

Of course, if you're like me and hate, Hate, HATE trackballs, there is another ergonomic option: a vertical mouse. It's supposedly more friendly.

I have one of those, too. It is better than a regular mouse, although clicking is a little weird sometimes.

Why you hatin' on the trackball?
