Sun, Brownouts, RoboForm

Sometimes I’m not really inspired to write about one particular thing, so I’ll just jump in here, start typing, and see what happens. So with that caveat, here we go.

It’s another beautiful spring day today. It’s only about 40 degrees this morning, but warm enough that I’ve switched to my fall/spring coat and can walk the dogs glove-free once again. There was a brownout here in Saratoga Springs yesterday — it immediately brought back memories of last month’s three-day outage — though, luckily, it’s more than thrice as warm now, and the outage only lasted from about 9:30am to 2:45pm. Still, I had to move my office location, and ended up working in Justin’s back yard, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, since we got to enjoy the great weather.


I’ve lately been obsessed with this great piece of software called RoboForm. I can’t recommend it enough. Once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it. Go get it. You won’t be sorry. In fact, I plan to treat myself to a birthday present of one of those little USB memory sticks and use Pass2Go with it — that’s the portable version of RoboForm so that all your Passcards, SafeNotes, and Identities can go with you wherever you are, and they’re never left behind on the computer. In fact, at the end of this blog entry, I mentioned putting RoboForm data on a free memory stick from Microsoft — before I realized that there was a USB-specific version of the software that runs directly from the memory card. I like this SanDisk 1GB Titanium Cruzer, but it’s gotten a few bad reviews, so not sure that’s the best option. But I love gadgets, so I’m excited about getting a new one.

Last night Jen and I enjoyed the sunset and the great weather with a fire by the lake at Seth and Niki’s place, followed by some drinks and appetizers for dinner at Longfellow’s with my Dad.
