I never know what’s going to get you guys going. You don’t comment for weeks and then, boom, you’re all over the place. Like yesterday. Well, yesterday was a long day. The Outlook software class turned out to be useful after all. It was done by a retired AirForce Col. (this guy–> http://www.imrtn.com/index.php )who runs an outfit called www.prioritymanagementworld.com/knoxville and he used all the signiture TRADOC techniques. The good ones anyway. And yes, TRADOC does get a few things right (though I didn’t think so while I was under their umbrella). Now I can set up rules for how Outlook handles certain emails and use the task list to effectively arrange may days ala backwards planning and standard op order format. Captain Buck would be proud of me. I never knew Outlook could be configured like that. I always thought it just handled email. Also drove two hours to meet up with the local chapter of the south east cartoonists society. It was my first meeting with them. I had to drive through pouring rain and several car wrecks but it was worth it. I met a lot of very kewl people. It’s been a while since I’ve been around artists who talk shop, craft, and aren’t from an alien planet. I typically don’t fit with the art crowd. Go figure. But these guys are all right. I guess being a cartoonist or illustrator puts them in a different category of the art community apart from the NEA types if-you-know-what-I-mean-and-I-think-you-do.
