a week that was

i've missed my blogging, and sketching, but I'm heading southwards.. & looking forward to a cold beer.. or two.. then..

I've decided this gmail is pretty nice.. if you have ever been traveling and have tried to use unreliable, slow, foreign keyboards, with uncooperative staff.. etc .. etc.. you'll know to follow the backpackers and seek out the places they are crammed into… such as small cyber cafes, barely furnished old shops with white wash or newspaper on the windows and uncomfortable plastic stacking chairs.. i've even found a laundromat where you can access the web.. presumably while you watch the washing dry.. anyway the frustration of trying to email from such places can be overwhelming.. especially with all the graphics and self promoting ads of hotmail and yahoo.. now gmail does have ads.. but they are only a short line of so of text…best gmail is up and ready to send very smartly.. it also doesn't drop out half way through typing an email, a feature the others really need to emulate... this blog is even emailed in using it... pretty hitech for an old guy.

nice to see that comments are still coming in... remember the sketch with the most comments wins the sketch of the month title
