I used to be that gullible and even take an odd pride in being up to the job. But it didn’t take long to catch on to the idea that packing a room full of these people was merely a crutch…–

    I love the article on reconditioning one’s response to the alarm clock – great stuff!

    And as a fan of Blacktree products, I also recommend checking out Visor if you spend much time on the command line – like QuickSilver, it’s invisible when you don’t need it, and powerful when you do.
