Enterprise Bridge

Weird.

I can't sleep since I woke up around 3:30am. I had been dreaming that I'd ordered two small animals from Amazon. A monkey and something else small arrived in an ordinary cardboard box. I was trying to call Amazon to find out where the chicken I'd also ordered was at, since I didn't want it sitting in a box, in a truck, all weekend. In the process, I discovered the monkey had already been taught to soul handshake. And while I was in an office suite at the mall trying to sort this out, the monkey performed well at guarding the door from the large group of people outside who were arguing with each other, and would occasionally drift in. All the while, some positively scary corona discharges were coming from the power transmission lines nearby.

I do not know where my mind comes up with shit like this.

New software

Users of iTunes under OS X should check out SizzlingKeys. It's a little background app/pref pane combination that lets you control iTunes from the keyboard regardless of what has the keyboard focus. It's a nuisance to have to raise iTunes to pause it when the phone rings, particularly if iTunes is on a different virtual desktop. (I use Desktop Manager, which is very good, though not yet a perfect copy of what fvwm's virtual desktop does for me under X)
