Spore Creature Creator

I finally tried the Spore Creature Creator yesterday, and took a little movie. I then discovered the the software includes a mechanism to auto-upload videos to YouTube. Smart on their part. My first attempt is below.

Napping Success

After 43 folders linked to this guide to napping, I decided to give napping / siestas a try. I had been thinking about it anyway, especially now that I’m working from home and my schedule is pretty flexible.

I’ve tried almost every day this week, without success, until today. I finally felt myself drifting off and dreaming, though I drifted in and out a few times, and ended up with a solid 15 or 20 minute nap when my alarm went off.

I followed the guide and was patient, and it worked. If you want to try adding a siesta to your schedule, you should probably give that guide a try.

Unless, that is, you’re one of those lucky people that can just nod off at a moment’s notice.

Firefox 3

After checking my most important extensions for updates (most had them) for Firefox 3 compatibility, I took the plunge and upgraded to version 3.

So far it seems pretty snappy, though I’m not used to the new look.

If I hit any snags as I use it, I’ll update this page.
