more pain, gmail funness, and voting @ 04:32 pm

I really need to stop typing, but wanted to write and say that my arm is pretty much the same as it has been. It does seem to be a bit better, but that could be because I'm treating it with pain meds.

I've been playing with gmail's power features. I'm now subscribed to some of my mailing lists on gmail, and I've started implementing filters on the gmail server. It's pretty cool because Outlook doesn't have to take hours filtering. This is especially helpful since JAWS seems to lock up while it's filtering messages into their various folders. The way I have it set up, it filters on the server, so I don't have to have outlook loaded to see filtered lists. Definitely beats sifting through mail to find high priority messages in the midst of list mail.

I officially have a doctors appointment for Monday at 11. They may not be able to do anything for me, but this inflamation is definitely not normal, so I hope at least I can have an idea of how to exercise my arm better.

Wrote Eastman an email today. I don't know how it will help, but maybe I'll hear something from them soon. I'd just like to know what will become of my life and jobs etc. soon.

Dad's bowling tonight, so I'm here by myself. I got up early to write my Idol Entry, so haven't slept enough, especially since I slept with my arm not elevated for part of the night. Blood pooled, and it throbbed more than normal. A nap will be in store for me.

Regarding idol,Voting has commenced Do the right thing and vote for your favs. If you don't want me to talk about idol voting anymore, yell at me and I'll think about listening :).

More soon.

You've figlred out how to filter things using gmail, then? I couldn't for the life of me figure it out, even though I'd created both labels and filters and switched my account to use imap instead of pop. If you have figured out how to sort mail and such, would you kindly mind telling me how you did so? It was driving me nuts and it's to the point where I've just said forget about it and switched my account back to pop. For whatever reason, my mail won't autimatically download, so I have to send/receive periodically to get all of my mail. Needless to say, it's very annoying, and it makes me miss my school account.
