enjoying the combination of spotify and my new DAC whilst I work on the final copyedits
ten ice lollies disappearing faster than something or other on a hot day…
obviously you don’t have to get your DAC from China. I should blog this instead…
if you listen to music from your computer, go and get an external DAC, it makes a vast difference to the music, more detail, more enjoyment.
moving the DAC outside the computer and getting better components means nicer sounding, more detailed music. I got this http://bit.ly/u47c9
My new DAC has arrived and it is brilliant. So much more detail from my music. Tearing myself away & going into work. Luckily it’s portable

Having a gtd brain emptying session, feels good to reset my levels
wearing my “O’Reilly Author” t-shirt, truthfully
Built my hifi rack and hung out with my family. Enjoying the weekend
finished writing my book last night, looking forward to a lovely bank holiday weekend
looking forward to rediscovering sundays, friends, pubs and relaxing this summer
I’ve finished writing my book, feels a bit odd, but I’m happy.
thanks all, now drinking some cognac and listening to the yeah yeah yeahs
really quite pleased with my cover http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596518752/cover.html spiders!
Edited 20,000 words today alone, nearly done.
finishing the book today, well the author review at least, then copy edit starts, but the writing will be done. Right back to it.
strange to think I’ll be done tomorrow =)
micro-naps ftw (~10-15 minutes is just right)
Spotify is that perfect sweet spot of laziness, cost, quality and ease of use. I could own all of this lossless or just explore it
for some reason tonight, I’m reminded of sitting in the audience at notcon04, watching a speaker and thinking “I could do that”
so many things end up as a sync problem

repeat after me twitterific is not adium, twitterific is not adium, twitterific is not adium, twitterific is not adium…
the important friday afternoon question “are dark chocolate kitkats inherently wrong or just tasty?”

Sardines and cheese on toast, a writing lunch
mont d’Or and some red wine
writing project management documentation and quite enjoying it oddly. Be good to get this project done =)
still have migraine going back to bed
discovering the delights of IRS form W-9 and W-8BEN
Nine inch Kindle DX is appealing, $489 price as expected, as current one is 359. Wifi & UK launch please. Perfect for textbooks
my migraine has decided to ignore the nice walk in the sunshine and hang around instead, swirly tunnel vision ahead
about to watch s01e01 of the wire, as an anniversary treat
off to have lunch with my wife for our wedding anniversary, happy.
pink floyd off CD, a cup of tea and more editing = my bank holiday monday
editing in a sunny room and enjoying my hifi
Lots of digging in the garden, now quite tired, but satisfied
a day off in the sunshine tomorrow, which Weather Pro tells me will be the best day, then two days of editing
