really I want tea. yes that kind of tea. no tea till graduation though.
maybe instead I get a present! but Erik, you say. you've been buying yourself presents all along. yes but!
hm. what is it that I really want? Illustrator CS for Mac. because I swear to god that one day I will learn to use it but mostly this is my last guaranteed year in academia so I need to get all the software this year that I think I might want to use for the rest of my life. I never have gotten QuarkExpress and think I probably should but who the hell has time to learn how to use it? Although I suppose if I decided to publish my own stuff it would come in real handy.
I was going to say that I never have learned Dreamweaver but that's not really true insofar as I can import sites and mess with the pages and create pages from scratch and all that. I'm never going to be especially proficient with it since I'm a geek who prefers hand-coding in BBEdit but I know enough to keep a website in order.
this week though what I am going to do is this:
finally install that new hard drive
install Tiger on new hard drive
reinstall all necessary components for MovableType and in the meantime souping it up to server status without paying for server OS
install hooks and shelves bought in last month
that's about it. I have to email the fellow in Rhetoric who administers the server to try to get Tiger's blogging software to do what we need it to do as I need to get the pedagogy website up by the end of August and he probably needs to get his stuff going as well. I should do that now. he had mentioned money. I should do that right now.
