Start of the week...

My day was filled with email, questions and expenses...

It seems my work email escalates daily, I got over 156 emails in my inbox. That does not count all the mailing lists both internal and external I have to read for my job. Out of the 156, 75 I had to do something on or with, 80 were things I needed to be in the loop about and 1 was spam that slipped thru the filter. Yikes.

There has to be a better way to manage all this email.

/me puts on my thinking cap.

On other less interesting notes (as if that was), I'm wrestling with Fedora 7 and X. I have a IBM T42 note book. I'm trying to get it to use an external display at a higher resolution that the builtin LCD dispay. Easy right? Naw, this is X Windows. I found ajax on IRC (ajax is our resident X god) and he told me with the OSS radeon driver that this notebook needs I have to do major xorg.conf hacking to get it to display. Sounds like an endeavor for tomorrow.

Got thru Lesson 1 unit 2 of Rosetta Stone German. Got a 100% on that test. I keep waiting, I know my German sux, this program is lulling me into a false sense of security. It out to get me I tell ya...
