One good thing

Something good for today: I have a new laptop at work. My previous one was almost 4 years old and about dead.

This means I have faster boot times, a widescreen display, Core 2 Duo processor, more disk space and memory, etc.. On the downside it means I need to take the afternoon getting software and configuration settings copied over. But even this has a bright side: I can use this as an opportunity to take a close look at a lot of junk that has accumulated over the past 4 years. Do I really need that documentation I downloaded in 2006? Probably not! Can I clean up those bookmarks to applications that are no longer in use? You bet!

I joked that this means I will be non-productive today. But in truth, taking some time to back away and organize things a little will pay off with more productivity in the future.
