(unlikely dreams)

vrijdag 16 september 2005

Progress has been made on the computer front:

1.) I synced my UF e-mail account into Outlook Express, so when October 1st rolls around and they take away our e-mail forwarding, I can just use Outlook rather than the poorly-designed-and-inefficient UF Webmail site. And, using Google, I also managed to find the data to do the same thing with my new UU mail account, so I no longer have to log onto equally-irritating Solis every time. (I tried adding Gmail to the mix as well, but discovered that I much prefer the colorful, organized Gmail site to the blandness of Outlook. Gotta love Google.)

2.) After uninstalling multiple programs and deleting a ton of old files, I now have just under 9 gigs of free space on my hard drive. I'm aiming for 10, but I don't want to delete my downloaded movies until I have the hard copies. I bit my lip and deleted my fuzzy, tiny-screened, odd-colored copies of Love Actually and The Princess Diaries (both of which we have on DVD at home), but my crystal-clear Hannibal, Bowling for Columbine, The Green Mile? Nope, can't do it.

Anyway, time to go to creative writing. The only other noteworthy thing is that last night after swimming, I finally tasted a Breaker from Friesche Vlag, and they are soooo good! It's like yogurt in a CapriSun package, with sunflower seeds in it (trust me). I don't normally like yogurt that much, but this stuff is great. I had the cherry one, but I can't wait to try the peach.
