Linux plus recycled hardware equals serious savings

Managed to forget my work keys this morning so I had to turn around as soon as I got here and run home to get them. That was moderately annoying and sure enough, my keys were right where I always leave them.

I also discovered this morning that I had somehow managed to hose a bunch of my MacOS X system preferences (probably something to do with a timed out restart initiated by my installation of Dialpad) and had to redo those as well.

Helped one of the PC users in the building set up TrueSync for his StarTac mobile phone with built in digital organizer. That definitely seems like the wave of the future to me. Why have a phone and a PDA when you can have one that is both.
