Dare to think differently!

Found this on “Hit the Back Button“. I think it speaks for itself. (Of course what you get out of it may depend where you’re coming from!) Enjoy 8 minutes of wisdom!

Reminds me a bit of the BBC’s New Year message from, I think, 2001, where a chap had had to register his child’s birth and death on the same day; reflecting on the care that he and his wife were shown had led him to become more tolerant of people’s weaknesses and considerably more intolerant of people’s willful ignorance. His story touched me deeply.

Workflow interrupted

Standard

Well, my laptop is being diagnosed for hardware faults, and has been since last Thursday. I knew there was a problem with one of the memory modules and I replaced that, but I was still getting Blue Screens of Death – WinXP SP3 – so decided it needed some serious looking at. Whatever happens I will give it a clean re-install of Windows (I’ve been tempted for ages to give Linux a try, but depend too much on Dreamweaver and Photoshop, although they might run OK with WINE).

Fortunately cloud computing means that I can still access and write emails, and having previously moved my data files to a 500Mb external hard drive means that I can still get quite a lot of work done. But… not having a number of programmes installed on the secondary laptop means that my workflow is interrrupted – or at least much more complicated.
