Software frustrations

Extremely slothful and indolent today. Had originally intended to get up at 1130 and putter around doing mixes and homework, but as it happened I didn't rise until 2 and so far have accomplished...well, not a whole lot. Installing Thunderbird, cleaning up the desktop on the Deskpro...maybe I'll throw Office 97 on here too. Since I'm sitting around doing nothing anyway.

Update Finally whipped Thunderbird's newsreader into shape, so I can just go ahead and delete OE. Yay!
