130. If I don't write something down,
Edited on Fri Jan-30-09 02:35 PM by Why Syzygy
I will never remember it. I'm weak in auditory skills anyway, and with the failing brain of the MsM, it goes double. No doubt my mental faculties would take an ever bigger hit if not for good pal, google, who helps me find anything on my mind, no matter how fritzy. I also keep a bunch of "drafts" in my email client with links and information I can retrieve with little trouble. Should get back on the Ginkgo.

And then there's the liberal use of Update Message.
