Some kind of little bee crawled up my tuchus yesterday and made me make my morning computer ritual more efficient. Instead of opening my gmail, Hotmail and MySpace accounts and the National Weather Service in separate tabs in my Firefox, I set up a Google homepage with feeds from a couple of blogs I follow, (non-MySpace) gmail and a weather report. I'd gotten so used to click-Ctrl-T-click-Ctrl-T etc., and then working through the links and logging in, then working through and closing them. It's somehow much less satisfying.
I think this afternoon's efficient computing task, if I'm not too fried from work, is going to be adding a hit counter to this page. 'cuz yeah, I have to admit I want to know.
