Just in time for her foray back into the world of being employed by someone else, Miss Lori has established Haikubes, "Poetry for Modern-Day Corporate Warriors." And she asked me to join!

So, I wrote 6 of these darn things in 1/2 an hour yesterday -- the voices in my head are back! I will post them gradually so as to not be too overwhelming, and also because I'll probably never be able to write another one after that creative burst....

To get you started, and because the last one I wrote doesn't really fit the theme, I'll post it here:

I can’t stop thinking
In terms of five, seven, five
Guess things could be worse

Handheld Recovery

I will never understand computers as long as I live. I finally broke out the operating system disc for my handheld, but decided to give it just one more try (fingers crossed, whispered pleas). And damned if it didn't sync right away! I have no explanation. None. I'm completely stumped and confused. Also, mightily relieved...

Handheld Problems

I had to do a reset on my Visor Deluxe (old, but reliable) last night, which didn't worry me at all, but today when I try to HotSync, I'm getting the following error message:

"Restore application database error
HotSync Error: Connection is lost (6410)"

I did try searching on the Handspring site, but nothing that was suggested made any difference.

Anyone have any ideas?

Looking at all the data I have on the desktop that's no longer in the palm of my hand is making me very nervous...

Sleeping Cat Poses

The Silly Sleeping Pose Olympics for cats. If you live with cats and you haven't seen poses like these, you aren't paying enough attention.

Thanks, S., for the link and the smiles!
