Arg. I lost my ‘net connection yesterday, apparently due to utility work down the street. It’s been down ever since. I’m actually posting this from work, so I don’t have much time to write.

In brief:

  • I spent much of my trip to England and back watching anime (Zeta Gundam, Full Metal Alchemist, and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex). Expect more about those soon.
  • I also plan to write a full description of the England adventures, including the drunk guy on the flight out, missing my flight back, horrifying British children’s programming, Times Square, and reflections on the differences between British and New Yorker hospitality (guess who wins?).
  • On the way back, I picked up David Allen’s book Getting Things Done, which was very useful. I’ve begun implementing some of his ideas. Specifically, I’ve implemented his Tickler File and his idea for keeping a master to-do list organized by context (at work, at my desk, at my computer, around the house, etc.).
  • I got my reserved copies of Nausicaa, Porco Rosso, and The Cat Returns at Suncoast today, which marks the last time I intend to buy DVDs there. From now on, I’ll just use Deep Discount DVD.

I haven’t the time to post any VR story today; hopefully I will tomorrow.
