What I DIDN'T do this summer

  • Create accounts on my MacBook and really get a handle on securing it.
  • Create a custom search engine in Google that would search the sites I tend to read the most: Lifehacker, Marginal Revolution, Kevin Kelly's sites, 43Folders, Web Worker Daily, my delicious bookmarks, Ask Metafilter, etc. I created a custom engine of usability sites for my User Interface class last spring, so it's not that hard.
  • Update my blog's template and add cool plugins.
  • Read some recent SILS master's papers to get an idea of what these papers are about.
  • Set up my turntable so it hooks into my PC.
  • Organize my CDs.
  • Organize the office closets.
  • Picasa.
  • Buy an extra power adapter for the MacBook.
  • Get my ClaimID site looking complete and purty.
  • Write to Sue.
  • Write to Cara.
  • Learn how to get FTP working on this blinkin' site.
  • Clean up the categories and tags on this blog.
  • Research whether I could hook my Airport Extreme router to my current Verizon modem/router box.
  • Lose 5 pounds of unsightly flab.
