is dizzy or just going in circles. Especially when I get involved in building, repairing and updating computers. Ever noticed that nothing goes quite as planned, takes twice as long as it should have and then it is still……just a computer?
So, Vista is a good operating system, no doubt about that. And Office 2007 is interesting, has some good features. KVM switches are very useful. USB only computers do not like PS2 mice/keyboards using adapters. Cheap cables do not work well with KVM switches. My Apple G4 Powermac works pretty good but doesn’t have a native video resolution high enough to take full advantage of my new monitor. Subwoofers can be quite noisy when using cheap audio cable. Spinning. Dizzy.
One of the guys in my class wanted to meet last night to discuss a few things bothering him. So I say sure, after work, yeah, that’s good. After work I call and we arrange to meet at Denny’s for coffee. I arrive a couple of minutes early and wait. And wait. And wait. I don’t have his cell number. After 33 minutes, he calls me, he’s still in Houston with his wife.
Shopping. At Tuesday Morning. Say’s he’ll do anything to bring a smile to her. I’m not smiling but then, I’m on the other end of the phone so it doesn’t matter. Then, he asks me if I have a minute to talk. While he’s in the parking lot at Tuesday Morning and I’m sitting at Denny’s. Yes, I have a minute.
He proceeds to tell me that he thinks he’s getting things done but isn’t. That sometimes you’re busy but not doing anything. Do I know what he means? Have you heard of Zig Ziglar? He’s a Christian you know. Sometimes doing what the Bible says doesn’t work. You know? Zig Ziglar says to just get up and walk somewhere. Did you know that Tammy Faye Baker said in her book that during her darkest moments, she would just pretend that she had a job, she would go to the store, walk around a minute, then come home, that way she felt like she accomplished something. Do I know what he means?
Spinning. Dizzy. Where’s my computer? Help. No, I don’t know what you mean, I say. Perhaps you could tell me what you are wanting from me? Turns out he wants to start a motivational group at the church so that it will help him be motivated.
