Remembering just how bad

I was with an Etch-A-Sketch thanks to this iPad app.  (called Telecran – available for free on the app store)

And in case you haven’t seen ‘the memo’, I’ve included it here.

Memo To All Staff from Tech Support:

It has been determined that there is no longer any need for network or software applications support. The goal is to Remove all computers from the desktop by March 31, 2011

Instead everyone will be provided with an Etch-A-Sketch. There are many sound reasons for doing this:

• No Operating System problems
• No technical glitches keeping work from being don
• No more wasted time reading and writing e-mails, and surfing the Internet

New shiny toys

Meet today’s new ‘shiny tat’ to keep me smiley for all of, oh, about the next week I should imagine…

It’s a 10.1″ Lenovo Ideapad.  Windows 7, Intel atom processor, 1gb of memory & a 250gb hard drive. It’s basically a netbook, but I’ve added Microsoft Office 2010 so I can use it for, ostensibly, writing, but well, we’ll see.  I’ve really got to stop procrastinating first.
