happy holidays… what is that?

11 December 2005

I hate happy holidays. it is like …’have a good one!’ a good what? root canal? ‘have a good root canal!”

patients come in to get seen and you care about what they have, you take the time to find out. you dont just give them a ‘you have a something’, so here is a ‘general wellness pill!’….. ‘have a good one’ sometimes it may be a root canal and a general wellness pill may actually have side effects and make them worse. “what the doctor doesnt care!?” so he gave me a general old ‘have a good one’ pill?

Now if you are like Dr. Perricone or one of the supplement people, the ‘have a good one’ ‘happy holidays’ treatment might work and probably is a good catch all for most folks, like a good old vitamin. but maybe it is offensive to their system and they have an allergic reaction to it?

so with 86% of the population christian, 6% jewish and 14% black…. generally it is OK to say ‘merry christmas’. of course who knows what percent of those actually celebrate the appropriate holiday. i try and hone my wishes.
so you wont here me say happy holi..daze. i will be asking this year. not all of my christian friends celebrate Christ-mass. of the people i care about, i know who celebrates what… christmas, fest of light, kwanza, capitalism.
but if you run across me I will happily accept a Merry Christmas, Happy Advent, Happy New Year and Happy Julian’s Birthday.

Gmail file space!

10 December 2005

Gmail File Space (aka Gspace) is a Firefox extension that adds an FTP-style interface to your Gmail account, allowing you to use it like a hard drive or server of sorts.

Reminiscent of previously-mentioned Gmail Drive and gDisk, Gspace is another cool Firefox extension to take advantage of the now over 2.5GB of storage offered by Gmail. You can upload both files or entire folders. CLICK THIS
