night snow–

the house





home early–

your empty coat hanger

in the closet

“tinyredcheck”  Check out Jim Calloway‘s Rules of Technology and Stress  (via elawyerblog).  Jim says,

concerning his mobile phone, ” for me, the off button is an important and often under-used

feature.”  He offers a techie version of the Serenity Prayer:  “God grant me the serenity to

accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to

know when to hit the off switch.”

profcranky  Prof. Crankalone points out:  The first time I told a boss I wouldn’t

get a mobile phone so he could reach me on weekends and in the evenings was

twenty-five years ago.  I pointed out that I had a new-fangled answering machine

and I’d get the message when I got back from my errands.  ( I might not have said

it that diplomatically).  At the time, most Americans didn’t even have answering

machines and a large part of the population considered those who did to be

uncommonly rude.  Don’t let anyone tell you that time-saving technology will

reduce the amount of time you spend working.
