Gotta couple new (to me) utilities I’m trying out. Desktastic lets you doodle on your desktop. It’s a silly thing I probably won’t keep since you can’t even save anything, and it erases itself between reboots. Maybe it’s just crippled for the demo version, but their website doesn’t say anything about that, so screw ‘em. But the other utility I probably will use is LaunchBar, made by the nice folks who brought you Sharity. LaunchBar is a little thingy that lets you type in just a few letters and draw up all kinds of things you might want to access on your ‘puter. Applications, documents, URLs, whatever. Hard to explain but it seems real handy on first use. Better than keeping 20 icons in my dock!
Oh yeah, happy 4th of July!! Say, why not celebrate Independence Day by breaking up with your unloved one, if you’re in a relationship that’s going nowhere? I’ve done it not once but twice in the past — it sure feels liberating, and the timing is just hilarious. Of course I’m in a happy relationship so I wouldn’t dream of it now, but trust me, this is really the best day of the year to dump someone if you have to do that. Follow my logic: the closer you get to The Holidays, the harder it is to break up with somebody. And you can’t do it in the Post-Holidays either… I think there’s an unspoken 4-month no-breakup zone. But July 4th falls just about as far away from that as you can get. Do it now, while they’re happy and drunk… sneak off while they’re watching the fireworks. Don’t wait another month or they’ll be left remembering you as their "summer love"!!
