Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

I'm just sitting here, doing nothing of real importance, but continuing to test out the posting of entries using my PacMate. I'm using PocketWord now, not that it really matters to you all, but anyway, but it seems to act more usable then the FsEdit program. Time will tell.

Liz and I haven't been doing too much
of interest here. We prefer to spend our time sitting around, relaxing, or playing games on the PacMate. You'd think we'd figure something to do exciting, but truthfully there's not much here to do that is earthshatteringly exciting, and Liz doesn't have any ideas on what she she might want to do, so without any complaints, we'll probably continue on. I hope I am a reasonable host.

My parents left today to go look at doors (we're continuing to plan out a major remodel of the house with wood flooring all over and a new front door). We may go with one of my friends, Neil, to the Travelers (our local minor league baseball team). We'll see how I'm feeling though, my hip has been hurting like a b*tch, at least last night and today, so it may not be too attractive for me to climb up and down bleachers. We shall see.

I meant to mention about my research and how that's going. Basically, it's not. My advisor wrote me the other day tell me that he was preparing a document about it, but hasn't apparently prepared it, so I again wait. I'm signed up for research hours, so all is good, I guess. I just feel guiltyab receiving payment for something I'm not doing yet. They say that my workload will increase, rest assured, but I still worry. I just realized that I worried a lot in my last entry. Why?

And that's about it from here. More soon.

I hate to get all techy and geeky about PM's because the lists for them are full of this kind of thing but was wondering what model you had and why you liked Pocket Word?
I have a giant issue with getting it to close and save things, so was just curious.
Good luck with the remodeling, and hey, enjoy your lower workload for now. I'm sure things will pick up.

I have a pacmate 2.5 with newest braille display. When posting in LJ, I like pocket word because can instantly translate the whole document rather than saving in braille, reopening it, copying, and pasting in to the web interface thing that avantgo gives me. Though word saves my entry, I don't need it to, all I want it to do is instanntly translate from grade 2. FS Edit isn't the best for this as when I paste from there, it goes in as computer braille and out as such, unless I save as an rtf or something which is an extra step that I don't need to do when using pocketLJ. All the best.

You should make Liz some mochas with the old machine and spill the espresso all over the floor. Chicks dig that.

No, seriously, hope you guys are having some fun. Why is your hip hurting?

The new Apple operating system (Tiger) has the capability of reading text on the screen out loud. It would also be a nice opportunity to get away from the 'Dark Side' of the computing world. ;-)
