Because so much of my job is web-driven (from our on-line catalog to databases to reference help), I feel like I spend too much time in front of a computer when at work. My goal is to cut back on that while at home, to spend more time doing other things that matter.
- Thing Two turned me on to Firefox and he's not wrong on this; unfortunately, there are sites I use/work with that still require IE, so that's not totally out of my life.
- My e-mail client of preference is Eudora, which allows me to download my Gmail. At MPOW, however, we use Outlook
- Unlike many of my SL2.0 friends, I haven't really gotten into the portable bookmark thing; I have one set at home for personal stuff and one set on my work laptop for professional stuff. Sometimes the twain meet, but rarely.
- Bloglines. Not Google Reader. Why? I'm Google-leary (they really are taking over our desktops), and not just a little lazy.
Only when I'm starting my commute (to get the traffic reports). Otherwise, not.
I don't really watch that much. Having said that, you should know that much of what I watch is crap. Really.
I've been using Netflix and hope to start watching again (the Move has interrupted things a bit). My problem with theatres is well-known.
My preference for most people is e-mail (less stress), but I do enjoy a good chat on the phone. Just don't expect me to have my cell phone on, please! And then, of course, there's my pen-and-paper addiction.
You don't want to know. Really.
I get Real Simple, Vanity Fair and the Atlantic Monthly for pleasure; for work I get Booklist and SLJ and TMC and TL and KQ and a bunch of others (not all have acronymed titles, but most!). I've also been known to get a really trashy magazine when I'm traveling.
The weekend NYTimes. Which, unfortunately, is becoming less and less of a Must Read.
God. The range! It's all about what strikes my fancy - Cajun, French, Jazz, Rock, whatever. I don't listen to it much beyond traveling (in my car, on a bus, etc.), but it does help while away the miles. And, of course, there's nothing like a good beat to help you get through cleaning a house!
There you have it. Talk amongst yourselves, think, ponder and drop me a note about where you are with your media consumption.
