[PUBLIC] Making Up Time (part two of perhaps several)

Personal hygiene accomplished for the day, I've initiated all the long-term activities for this morning that don't require my direct intervention. I was pleased to discover that the disk recovery I'm running on a friend's hard drive has finally, after 90 hour of analysis, determined that only another 590-some-odd hours will be required to deliver the damaged files (or what's left of them). If the estimate holds true, the process should complete sometime near mid-April.

The other activity that will take some time is the download of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Express. I missed out almost entirely on VS2005, but I intend to get up to speed on 2008. Why? Today my shiny new Motorola Q should arrive, delivering unto me my first Windows-on-the-move experience since Titus, my poor old PDA, was retired from service. I am looking forward to having a mobile platform to deploy some of the smaller applications that make my life easier to, especially as this one will have all the Internet it wants.

Now, before my client begins in earnest their migration activities and I still have some imaginary measure of freedom, I'm off to acquire what supplies will be needed for my besieged life over the next 3 days.
