|I have no idea what is going on with me right now. I'm in the same and different funk. Not that I am really unhappy. Or is it rather I don't think I am unjoyful, but maybe unhappy? There is a difference between being unhappy and unjoyful. Who the heck knows? Most of my everyday life is fine -- I enjoy my job; the people I work with are great; I have close friends who I don't see nearly enough, etc. One thing I can say with certitude is that I don't have a 'hangout friend -- someone to just hangout with from day-to-day. I've said to a number of people lately that I am really antsy to go to New York City, to get on with my life. I'm just buying-time here, which I've said before. A question that pops into my mind, though, is whether I may be using that as a convenient excuse to mask something else going on inside of me. Don't know. I can just say that I am ready to go, ready for a change, ready for something different.
Health wise, despite strange things happening, I seem to be fine. The ultra-sound showed nothing wrong with my insides, even my gallbladder is fine -- no gallstones, no operation! Blood tests and an upper GI confirm that nothing strange is going on. I may have an irritation of the lining of my stomach or upper intestines, which I'm taking medication that is supposed to help. My doctor wants me to continue taking the pills for a couple more weeks. Okay enough of that.....
I'm really frustrated by the differences in the displays between the Mac and a Windows PC. Why or why can't everyone just buy a Mac! :-) The most frustrating thing is the color differences. Colors appear much darker on a PC then on a Mac. I design what looks great on my Mac, and of course will look great on other Mac's, yet the colors are just too dark on a PC. I try to compensate, but I just don't have enough experience to discern the correction. Another less series problem is that text appears larger on a PC. I can pretty much compensate for that variation, though. So, I got to work yesterday and began playing around with the site redesign (for the KSU PASS programs on Saturdays, I just have to be there in case something goes haywire with our network) and discovered that even in attempting to use lighter colors, everything looks terrible. AAaahhhhhhhhh........
I almost bought a cheap PC yesterday so that I could check everything before uploading the files to my host, like I do at Kent. I really don't know much about e-Machine computers. The components seemed fairly good, but not at all expensive. One system with a regular CD player was only $400.00, sans monitor. I guess even if I do add a cheap 15" CRT that could be a couple hundred dollars more. Not at all that cheap, I guess. It wasn't a bad machine, though. But I digress.... I hate PC's. Okay one more thing -- I work with both platforms at work, have both on my desk, have to support and configure both, and I will take a Mac over a PC any day.
