work computers -rolls eyes-

ding-donging between the PCs at work and Portia the wunderkund pBook at home is making my brain hurt. i get to work, and wonder why the hell my Expose is suddenly non-functional, only to realise that -wait- PCs don't HAVE Expose. esp crappy old machines like my work PC.

all that was an elaborate lead-in to: you've noticed this blog has grown increasingly silent. yet the LJ (yes, there is a LJ. see the link in the bottom of the sidebar?) has not fallen into complete and utter silence. (in fact, didn't i just post there to celebrate my first Milo Dinosaur? perhaps not.) why is that, you ask. do i not love you anymore?

and the answer, plain and simple, is that my Evil Work PC with its Evil Internet Explorer will not allow me to update here. i open the start page, and somehow, for some reason known only to arcane programmers, the SIGN IN button doesn't appear. anywhere. and hitting enter, which usually works on Portia as well as non-Mac machines, doesn't work. i've finally figured out how to get Mozilla to do it (force it through the login page anyway) but it's a pain, even though ostensibly this is a better browser. so updates on the Blogger will be few and far between, i suspect. (though perhaps not this weekend, since it will be a long one!)

please keep an eye on the LJ -i'm an attention-whore, i know, i know- because LJ lets me log in, even at work. -keeps a wary eye out for heads peeping over cubicle walls- (thanks to my sudden burst of typing -typing = productivity. not.) plus i can change the colour of the text over on the LJ -i can't do it here, my WYSIWYG editor won't load! -bitchbitchwhinewhine-

all right. back to work for a bit before heading off home for the weekend. some serious sleep time, plus hangin' out with the parental units! (erm. yay?)

(oh, and Ry -- i intended to write you an email when i got into the office, erm, 10 hours ago, but erm...i forgot. i'll write when i get home, i promise. -grin-)

How weird, that your work computer throws up such strange glitches. Maybe it's a secret ploy to frustrate would-be bloggers among the lackeys...

p: i'll try that when i get to work on monday. have taken today off for a long weekend!

tym: yeah...it could be. on the other hand, it could just be that my work computer is so freakin' old that it doesn't do anything i want it to, including open my email...:p

J, i got your email :) Will reply when I have the time. Now its like sleep at 0100, wake up at 0500, knock out around 3 to 4 miles, do a couple hundred situps, pushups. Go into the sims, brief OPORDs and go right into the action.

Will write soon!...sounds like work is fun for you...
