Et cetera...

  • Installed Service Pack 2 for Windows XP today, at the svelte download size of 266 MB. It's got a popup blocker that works too good. We'll see how long that lasts. SP2 has a number of other features that I haven't yet discovered.
  • XP users ought to check out Microsoft's Power Tools collection. Go to, go to downloads, etc.
  • Bought a new cell phone from att wireless. I ordered it Friday night, it was at my house at 10:30 today. Fantastic. It's the Samsung x426. As I said somewhere, my old phone is 3 years old and from Sprint. It had none of the fancy features the kids these days are using, and this new phone has most of them. With the ring tones and the text messages and the color screen and the sim cards and the beepity beep beep beep. I also think it was free.
  • That said, I'm confused. What is the difference between SMS and text messaging? Why does every website that remotely involves this subject attempt to extract money from me? (Which is just like PalmOS sites, I've found) And who are these people who care about their crappy cell phones?!
