This is excruciating

Excuse the self-indulgent (as my ex described blogging in general) whining and complaining. A more substantial post is to follow.

I HATE MOVING. Not only is it an incredible amount of physical work, just to move stuff around, organize, pack, etc., but I am incredibly allergic to dust! And since I am kicking up loads and loads of dust (especially in the basement,) I am constantly sneezing, and my eyes are dripping and ... (never mind the rest.)

Chaos ensues

I've been doing lots of sorting, cleaning, and packing lately. It's been very hard to do (maybe that's why I've been spending so much time blogging.) Anyway, if you want to share my misery, check out my photo album, called "Chaos". I'll be updating it regularly with more photos of my presently completely chaotic life.

On line and other tools

I've been discovering a whole host of new, and interesting online tools lately. I thought I'd do a bit of a round-up of the ones I'm using most.

Digg:

Dig is an interesting beast. It's basically a social editorial system. Someone submits a story, and if enough people 'digg' it, it gets promoted, and people see it. There is a feed for all stories, as well as a feed for individual categories. It's focus is technology, although non-technical stories get through all the time.

The purposes of blogs

I've been having all sorts of fun the past month, getting re-acquainted with blogs and blogging. I've been gathering lots of blog feeds to read, working hard on my own blogs, and thinking about blogging, and what it means.

Friday Cat Blogging

I'm succumbing, finally, to the Friday Cat Blogging compulsion. Don't know what Friday Cat Blogging is? It's a sort of tradition that I've recently discovered among bloggers to post pictures of their cats on Fridays. I have such cute cats, and they are mine for but another month (a good, old, friend of mine is adopting them because I'm going to school.) Thus, there are very few Fridays left to cat blog.

More people who are out of their minds

As some of you might know, Apple announced last week that they are switching from using IBM Power PC chips to using Intel chips (primarily because of issues of power consumption). I'm all for it, and I have yet to hear one Mac fan that has problems with it.

In fact, I've been reading all sorts of stories of doom and gloom from both the Windows world and the Linux world.

The Myth of the American Dream

As some of you who've heard me talk about this know, I am of the opinion that one of the most significant reasons why we don't have things like a single-payer health care system, a truly compassionate safety net, and a livable minimum wage is because of the myth of the American Dream. It goes this way: America is the land of promise. Anyone who works hard can bring themselves up, and become middle class, and many  become rich. The icons of this dream, like Oprah Winfrey, Tiger Woods, and Bill Gates, are trotted out for all to see.

I'm officially bored...

The Daily Kos, and the Liberal Avenger both have entries today (spurred on by Think Progresspost on it) on the Downing Street memo, which from what I've so far read, proves that Bush lied to us.

Podcasting

OK, I think it's finally time for me to talk about podcasting. First off, even though I'm a complete geek, I am, believe it or not, not an extremely early adopter. I know, I say this, and you shake your head. Anyway, since podcasting is almost, well, passé for the ubergeeks, it's time for me to talk about it.
