other happenins:
  • GMail got a cool chat integration feature I got a change to play around with. Kudos to Doug for introducing me to Gmail - there was quite a bit of resistance in the beginning - no more!

  • my back is whacked. I hopped into one of the can trucks here and bumped my head, crouched, and ow! I didn't care about my head - my back is not happy :( it's not too serious and trying to take it easy on the back as much as possible. I may not be as responsive to matters as I usually am this week.

  • morn and I clearly made a mess over the wkd. we made up on valentine's day :) let's just say that when I uttered the exclamation f*ck out of frustration, she mistook it for f*ck you - oops - miscommunication!

  • I reconnected with the only other male Thai burner I know - Yeen! It was very random and it's good to hear he's also working on establishing himself in Thailand. congrats for makin it to your first year! so much more to come...heh..heh.. :P so that makes 3 thai burners in Thailand to date - we're growin!

  • i've got a Second Life cover letter in the works. thank you so much for all the input and support some of you have given me - I haven't been able to touch it since last thu. If you want to help me review my next round of edits, please do let me know!

  • had a good 2nd interview at the VFX startup. My task is to distinguish bottom line vs R&D projects. I'm really glad to hear Xye's real intention is to build a creative playground and research facility in Thailand.

  • we're all look for ole G to drop back into town this week. He's been studying Tai Fu Do for the past 4-5 weeks so I'm sure he'll be rock solid into the ground when he gets here!

  • spending lots of time helping the BM webteam out with evaluating Skype vs Gizmo Project. I've got a bulleted summary of this article if anybody wants it - just give me a holler.

  • my new online cave is taking shape! as some of you know, my computer got hacked into on Friday the 13th (in Jan). I pretty much want to keep this configuration for "research-only" purposes. Anything to keep me focused is a big plus these days.


  • alright - it's wed noonish and it feels like it's monday afternoon. what to do when time feels lost? I'm happy I'm getting through my list of things i'm present to (opposed to a list of things to do!)...until then - take it easy!
