I've been downloading more stuff

I've been downloading more stuff for my Mac, and it is so sweet. In addition to uControl and Virtual Desktop, I grabbed WeatherPop (which displays the current temperature and weather in my menubar, with a pull-down showing the 5-day forecast) and PTHiTunesNotifier (which lets me make hotkeys for playing, pausing, and forward-skipping iTunes, as well as popping up a little semi-transparent window with the name of each new song that comes on, and a hotkey to let me pop that up again at will). And in a fit of virtuosity, I went ahead and registered VirtualDesktop and WeatherPop, as well as OmniWeb (which last I've been meaning to register for well over a year now).

And I finally got some reading done to get back into my linguistics stuff. It's hard, starting up again after a two-month hiatus. Well, I'm going to be spending four hours on a plane tomorrow (to Northfield, MN, to interview at Carleton), maybe I can get something done then.
