Running in circles

I've been keeping busy - the past week has brought three deals at work which is finally going to push me over the line and make me debt free (aside from the condo and car) which is good - but it's been a lot of hard work getting here. I've been doing a lot of work with a financial planner and we are working towards the goal of me buying a house with a yard for Skype and a basement for my home theater dreams. The only problem with me keeping as busy as I've been is that poor Skype has not been getting the attention he needs, and I have been neglecting some household chores. With an all day wedding to shoot on Saturday and a bunch of plans for Sunday it might be a while before I get a chance to catch up. Luckily labor day weekend is coming up next weekend and although I'll be up in BC visiting my grandparents for part of it I should be able to eke a relaxing day out of it if I try really hard.

Hot 650 on 4355 actionOn a more technical note I'm 95% in love with my new Treo 650. Aside from a few quirks with the Palm operating system it's a great little mobile device and the push email solution offered by Chatter is truly amazing. I can have 30 second response times to quick emails from friends and business partners alike from pretty much anywhere - a true technologists dream. I had gotten used to mobile email with my HP 4355 but this really takes the cake - it's small, pocketable, and has a built in always on internet connection. I really can't wait till this kind of thing becomes standard fare for the American public and I can have more than a handful of my geekiest friends within seconds reach.
