Saturday morning

Not working today and will probably actually take some time off.  Library and such.  They want $25 from me for my annual membership since I don't have a residence in Georgetown.  The fact that my business contributes hundreds of times more than any 5 residents in Georgetown sales tax and general business generation in the city seems to be beside the point.  Not to me.  But to them.

Got an email that it was time to reorder drugs and, of course, I don't know my password so I went out on roboform web site where I can log in and get one if I'm not at my usual pc.  No longer.  They now have Roboform Everywhere for $9.  Unlimited installs.  So I popped for it and got it on my home  PC.  Then I noticed the expiration date of one year.  

So I own one Roboform PC license, one USB portable, and one for my Treo that I haven't used in a long while.  Those were all paid for five or six years ago.  Roboform figured out that they needed a new model and this is it.  Not sure how I feel about it.  On the one hand I use Roboform 30+ times a day 5-6 days a week so that works out pretty good.  And I will probably use it more if I can get it everywhere.  So $9 a year is probably a good deal.  But there are other ways.  Google docs is secure and always available.  Just a little discipline to set up a system of records would make it usable.

But it does not autofill forms and the browsers don't do that nearly as well as Roboform.  The time I save with auto filled forms probably works out to more than $1K of time per year.

So I guess I'll pop for the $9 bucks next year.

It's been a nice, quiet morning.  Took the dogs out to their running place to their extreme delight.  We ran into another dog owner who has a big (probably 90+ pounds) dopey nice dog that we've played with before so everyone ran around and wrestled and such.  It was fun.  I should be able to take them out again before it gets dark tonight and maybe to the park tomorrow.

Now time to do something semi productive.
