I've found my computer to be pretty good at providing those not-so-subtle hints that it's time to walk away from the desk.  Like when you get the blue screen of death at 4:50 on a Friday... it's telling you that it's OK to start the weekend a little early.

Right now PowerPoint has decided that I should be writing the speaker notes of my presentation in French (Switzerland).  Apparently it's OK with me writing the presentation itself in English (thankfully - those red squiggly lines under every single word (except "in") in the speaker notes is bad enough), but it feels quite strongly that I should be getting my passport ready before actually speaking to the presentation.  All efforts to change the language in the speaker notes section to the contrary.

Anyway, back to the battle.
