Where'd the day go?

Well, I still have till noon tomorrow.  And I’m mostly done.

Hey, this is different!

I see that the new WYSIWYG editing that Dave promised in Scripting News has been unleashed.  I’m not sure if I like it or not yet — it’s mostly nice, but having to go to the menus to insert a link is a bit of a drag; I am an HTML professional, and typing a raw <a> tag is wired into my fingers these days.  I see the “source” button, so I know I can go back to my antiquated ways if I need to — thanks!

I’m beginning to feel the need for a hardware upgrade at home

I recently got a faster laptop (500 MHz Pentium III, upgrading from a 266 MHz P-II) at work, and I’m about to get a new 1GHz desktop (which I’m also upgrading from a 266 MHz P-II).  My home machine, by some strange coincidence, is a 266 MHz P-II, and it’s suddenly feeling rather slow, especially when Lotus Notes decides it’s time to do a serious indexing run.  I don’t expect to do anything until the end of the month — maybe prices will drop a bit more between now and then. 

I don’t really know what I need, either — I know I want a faster machine with more memory, a faster CD-ROM burner, DVD, and a TV tuner, but other than that, I am clueless.  I don’t think I’m in the Mac market (everything I need for work runs on Windows), though I must admit that the G4 Cube is awfully appealing — but it still probably wouldn’t help me make any of my videos presentable.  Or get me caught up on my photo editing.
