Bruce, Caroline


Good morning, or whatever it is. This is going to be a completely pointless post accept that I'm up so figured I'd just say hi. Yes, it's 3:40 in the morning, and it appears that there's only one other person on my Friend's list who's crazy enough to be online at this precice moment.

So you're probably thinking, (or maybe you're not), why exactly am I up? The answer to that question is totally beyond my comprehention. All I know for sure though is that work is going to absolutely drag today if I don't get some more sleep, but I was just laying in bed without sleeping so figured that I'd get up and write to see if that would work.

Okay, how weird is this? Taz was laying here at my feet. I wasn't bothering him or anything, and he just decided that it'd be fun to try to take a chomp out of my ankle. It wasn't a hard bite or anything, but it was obviously not expected. He has now been banned from under the table, at least until he comes back. SMILE!

So anyway, what else can I ramble about. I'm using the LJ interface to post this for a change, so although I will be proofing this, any mistakes still found are due not to me, but to my fingers, which seem to be moving on their own at the moment.

Okay, I think I've gone on long enough. I'll let you get back to whatever it was you were doing before I wrote this completely pointless post. And I, well, I'm going to see if I can coax a couple more hours of sleep out of myself. After all, it's Friday, and I've got the next two days to stay up late or whatever. So, bye for now, and I'm sure I'll be back later.

Hey world! It's me. Aren't you thrilled? SMILE!

Anyway, despite my weird night last night, I've actually managed to get a
ton of stuff done today. I reviewed a computer quote that was sent to a
potential customer, talked to someone else who wants a computer system with
JAWS, K1000, and training, and got an evaluation call done. All of that
within two hours! And, I have now officially met my time quota for the week
and could technically stop right now, but I'm trying to bank some extra time
so that I can take off on the 31st in order to have a long weekend. So far
it looks extremely possible and I'm absolutely thrilled.

Anyway, I never did manage to start going through J-Say yesterday, so I
think that's my next project this morning. Oh, maybe I should grab
something to eat first though, huh? SMILE! Catch you all later!

Vista Speech Recognition

Hi everyone. I am using the Windows Vista speech recognition software to write this entry. This is a very interesting concept and I find it to be very fascinating.
I am using JAWS, along with my braille display, and I am able to edit things quite well. I honestly think that I could get used to this. I like the concept of being able to speak my thoughts rather than write them. There are some very good sound cues, and they let me know how things are working. I am able to correct mistakes, and I rarely have to use the keyboard. So, maybe in the future, you will be getting more posts from me using speech recognition.
For now though, I am going to close this entry, and post it to my journal. So, I will talk to you all later. Have a good night, and I hope you enjoy your weekend. So long for now.
