Screen and Life, Detach and Attach

You are in your office. The light is off, and the sunlight moseys in through the window. A cool breeze gently flows through the window. You are sitting in your office chair, your feet up on another chair. There is a mostly-full teacup on the desk near you.

> INVENTORY

On your lap is a 17" laptop (somewhat warm)In your pocket:

  • Bulky wallet
  • Keys
Around your neck:
  • 2G USB key
Clipped on your pants:
  • Cellphone
> RELAX

Ahh....

> SCHEDULE

  • Right now you are taking a break from configuring software to BLOG
  • When you are done, you will assemble and email some research data to your boss
  • Sometime later today, a co-worker will probably stop by for help with programming their ePrime experiment
  • At 15:00, Carnival will start
  • Sometime before Carnival you would like to move to the NSH Atrium for a change in scenery

> HISTORY

  • You just got back from lunch. Before then, tired of getting no responses on the message board on how to work around install problems with the $7000 neuroimaging software, you rolled up your sleeves and did ugly things to force it to install. Before then, you did some web maintenance, and a bit before then, you walked to work.

> STATUS

You feel healthy, comfortable, and peaceful. You are moderately full from your recent lunch, and are somewhat sleepy.

> MODERATE USENET

You moderate your Usenet newsgroups. Roughly 5% of submissions are not spam.

> PLUG IN HEADPHONES

Done.

> PLAY SOME MUSIC

You run your script to randomly play music, first playing MC Frontalot's "Special Delivery" because you want to hear it.

> DO WORK

You stop blogging and go back to work.
