Despite my best intentions to allow my work only to be distracted by my obsessive reading about the pharmaceutical industry, large swaths of the afternoon got sucked up by two distractions:
1. Trying to import as much album artwork as possible into my iTunes collection using this newly-discovered little utility. All the while when I was doing this, I wondered what the benefit was going to be of having an album's artwork show up on the postage-stamp-sized screen of my Nano as it bounces around inside my pocket while I'm jogging.In case you are wondering, yes there were better ways I could have been spending my time. The menace of accumulating laundry being an obvious example.
2. Figuring out how have my very own favicon (the little icon that appears to the left of the URL in one's browser).* This necessitated the impromptu creation of an Official JFW logo. Unfortunately, so far as I can tell, the logo does not actually work in Internet Explorer but instead will only be visible to whatever Firefox users read this blog other than Eszter and I.**
So long as I'm venting my geek-spleen, let me add that I have always wished Blogger had tags (by which I mean keywords, or categories for posts; see example tag cloud), and I have been lately tempted to try to subcontract someone to export my entire blog--archives, comments, karaoke photos, everything--out of Blogger and into some other platform just so I can have them. I say "subcontract" because even I have to draw the cyberprocrastination line somewhere.
* This page creates the icon for you and explains how to change your template to include one. But: if you use Blogger, you have to serve the icon from somewhere else.
** Or is it "other than Eszter and me"? Ugh: lately I feel like I've acquired some kind of grammatical brain lesion or something.
