Inbox Amusement and Mailbox Joy

I am always amused when Amazon recommends one of my own books to me.

Today’s mailbox joy: My new glasses! Huzzah! Now I have to stop jumping when I pass a mirror. They’re very different from what I usually wear. Also handed to me by the postman were three secondhand books that I was beginning to suspect had gone astray.

Stupid Microsoft is making me download file conversion thingys so that I can actually open the Excel file that contains my assigned freelance work. Gnarr. I wonder what else it will make me do. (Ssh — there is a Macbook test in my future. Do you think Microsoft heard about it?)

And finally, I am cold. I’ve already put socks and slippers on, and I suspect I’m going to have to put a cardigan on over my long-sleeved t-shirt.

    If I can have one computer that I know has less of a chance of conking out on me, I’ll gladly forego the geek 3rd.

    Of course, it could be a parallel to my 3rd too. Nothing says I can’t practice sacrifice to pick apart use two different magical systems at once.

    If you have problems with the file, as I was using the latest version of Office when I saved it, I can resend it as a “Save as Excel 2003” format.

    Use Open Office or M$ Office if you need to make entries into the spreadsheet; or you can download a free viewer “xlviewer” from M$ – no input, but can be read.
