She told Lesley that she needed some help. She wanted me to call round after work on Friday.

Then it was decided that we would call round as a family to-day, so I came straight home on Friday. Now, she doesn't want us to come to-day; it has to be to-morrow.

Micro Flight Log 001

Tried to improve performance - currently running at less than 15 fps - reduced terrain vertices/? to less than 1000 - it didn't seem to make any difference to performance - increased them back to what they were / max - didn't seem to improve the view, particularly.

How important is the Managed Desktop?

In a world of the tsunami, war in Iraq, poverty, AIDS, does it matter whether people have a managed desktop?

We need a Big Bang because ...
... services are shared - large, distributed groups of people (everbody?) need/s to move at once.

Work has not delivered - security, satisfaction, sense of achievement; am I being ungrateful?
