Jottings by Jerry – January 1

   New Year’s Resolutions for Internet Junkies…

I will try to figure out why I *really* need 9 e-mail addresses.

I will stop sending e-mails to my wife (husband).

I resolve to work with neglected children — my own.

I will answer my snail mail with the same enthusiasm with which I answer my e-mail.

I will stop sending e-mails, ICQ, Instant Messages and be on the phone at the same time with the same person.

I resolve to back up my 12GB hard drive daily…well, once a week… okay, monthly then…or maybe…

I will spend less than one hour a day on the Internet. This, of course, will be hard

to estimate since I’m not a clock watcher.

When I hear “Where do you want to go today?” I will not reply “MS Tech Support.”

When I hear a funny joke I will not reply, “LOL… LOL!”

I will read the manual… just as soon as I can find it.

I will think of a password other than “password.”

I will stop checking my e-mail at 3:00 in the morning… 4:30 is much more practical.

I resolve… I resolve to… I resolve to, uh… I resolve to, uh, get my, er…

I resolve to, uh, get my, er, off-line work done, too!

I was going to quit all my bad habits for the new year …

… but then I remembered that nobody likes a quitter.

Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible. …

Have a good week & Happy New Year!!
