It was most enjoyable to live without any of my personal tech (with the exception of my credit card), I've been much better able to get a handle on what I need and what I don't. Ironically, I'm actually spending time getting better acquainted with the tech I do use, like IE and LaTeX.
Had fun with Andrew Monday, but sadly he couldn't stay the night. We had an interesting talk yesterday about STDs. He's so concerned about the Blood Test, it's really quite cute.
