I don't think I've accomplished anything, really, in the last couple days. I've puttered around, pushed numbers from column A to column B, projected a couple things, but... well, whatevs.
I am going to time how long it takes to do certain things. Like, with a stopwatch. Just out of curiosity. Door-to-desk and desk-to-door in the morning and evening. Walking to the grocery store. Walking to the gym. Average time to get to my car from the apartment. Average time to drive to Bucktown. Average time to drive back from Bucktown. I have a stopwatch. I have Excel. I have curiosity. I have the technology. I have the capability to build the world's first bionic man.
I should fix up my desktops or at least pull the information off of the hard drives. One slight glitch is that the boxes are all Lunix and I don't run a Lunix box at the moment. So, here's the idea: run a live CD, pull info off of hard drives onto a thumb drive, go back to normal and drop data onto hard drive. Hmm. I really hope there are drivers for this thing in Lunix. An initial glance makes it look like it does. But, who knows? Unfortunately, it doesn't work on laptop hard drives, otherwise I could try to rescue stuff from R's dead laptop.
I got a gallon of whole milk for $1.99 and a dozen eggs for $0.79. Man! That's better than 1000 cal/$ when you figure in tax. Throw in some homemade fibrous bread, some fruit and veg, and you've got yourself some hearty, yet reasonably healthy, meals on the cheap. That's what I'm all about at the moment.
