Day 274

[reading: Charles Stross, "The Atrocity Archives"]

Urk. Feeling distinctly under the weather today, with shivers and headache and aching sinuses—some kind of flu-like thing I guess. At least I don't have to feel guilty about not showing up for work—given that I'm effectively a contractor, I don't get paid for sick days.

In the meanwhile, this article from Philip Greenspun is interesting from a Copious Free Time perspective. I liked:

"Publish a public Web diary of what you do every day, thus discouraging you from wasting time because you'll be ashamed to admit that all you accomplished yesterday was a 15-minute oil change and a trip to Target (my own, but never implemented)."
which is precisely the reason this thing originally came into existence.
