Woke up from a dream -- which I actually remembered some of, which is unusual in itself -- that involved looking over the edge of a ledge that seemed to be part of a building being renovated on the left, and part of a cliff on the right. I do get nervous around unprotected drop-offs, but don't remember dreaming about it before. The building under construction, college caffeteria, and unfamiliar city streets are common.
Most of the morning -- ok, the whole morning -- was taken up by a seminar on export controls. The speaker managed to be both informative and entertaining, so that was good. Spent some time talking to people, as well. No walkies.
My new netbook has been shipped, and is scheduled to arrive a week from Monday. The new scooter charger I ordered arrived.
Somehow, a number of things didn't get done despite being on my to.do list right out where I could see them. I feel rather upset about that.
I did get some work done on the makefile for audio recording directories, and a little practice on the Conflikt set. So that's good.

1117 Th ' dreams mostly involving a WiFi?? antenna dangling from a cable off a ledge that seemed to be connected to a building on one end and a cliff on the other, fear of high places with edges, caffeteria food, and unfamiliar city streets. The antenna was the only really new element. Being in a high place and being anxious near the edge isn't new, but it's uncommon in my dreams. * up 6:40; W=194.8; drugs, nose, teeth, dishes, exercise, light @ esr » The Smartphone Wars: Samsung Busts a Move? * morning music: ran through one song for Conflikt set.
