In July I bought a cordless keyboard and mouse from Logitech. Not long afterwards, some of the letters on the keytops started fading out, and by now a number of the keys are completely blank. I can manage, but it's rather annoying, so I finally called Logitech in Madrid to complain about it.

I was rather surprised to encounter a nice young lady who, without any argument, promised to send me a replacement keyboard (and mouse). Of course it would have been better if the original keyboard had been faultless, but customer support like this seems worth mentioning.

This past week I joined the photo-sharing site Flickr and began uploading a small selection of my photos to it. The site offers good facilities for organizing, displaying, and sharing photos. So far I'm rather impressed.

In search of the perfect playlist

Here's my current idea for the perfect iTunes playlist.

  1. Make a playlist of my 200 least recently played tracks.
  2. Make another playlist of my 200 least often played tracks, excluding those played in the last two weeks.
  3. Make a third playlist consisting of the above two playlists added together. This is the one I actually use.
