My Mozilla installation had a burp on Thursday, about the time I changed my system password at school (don't you hate when you fail to hit [tab] and end up typing your password next to your username, while a student is watching?? argh). I think my prefs.js file got corrupted, and in any case lost all of my settings and couldn't get popmail anymore. For future reference: restore prefs.js from the backup first, *then* start mucking around inside Mozilla. End result: I lost any work-related bookmarks that were not also bookmarked at home, and all of my recent saved email. I'm trying to think of whether I lost anything important, and hell if I know. I guess we'll see. It took me several hours to get most of my email back and working.
My pet peeve of the day: the phrase "comedy gold", especially when used non-ironically, is like nails on a chalkboard. I don't know why.
Started using EndNote today. Has it fully automated my life yet? No. I thought if I entered all my references, a paper would spontaneously emerge, like proteins from primordial soup. Maybe I should attract some lightning and a reducing atmosphere first...
We went to Wholly Frijoles for St. Patrick's Day. Was very tasty despite being not in the slightest bit Irish.
