Like everyone it seems I check my email frequently. I use Google for my mail since I was grandfathered in with the Google Apps for Your Domain thing they had going on for a while. (I used to run my own mail server for a while but that was truly more trouble than it’s worth!)

Google breaks things down into five categories:

  • Primary
  • Social
  • Promotions
  • Updates
  • Forums

Every time I get a new item in “Updates” my heart skips a beat.

I ordered a camera a few months back. It’s backordered around a year or so from what I understand. It’s spendy, but at the same time it’s something I want — and something that won’t really lose value either (well, the lenses gain value which offsets the loss of value of the camera body).

It’s a double-edged sword.

When it’s in stock I’ll get it; when it’s in stock I have to pay for it.

I keep watching.
