the monkey is in  
First day back after my week of jury duty. We found pretty swiftly for the defendant, although I was surprised how much deliberation we actually took to get there since we all despised the plaintiff's lawyer. All in all, it wasn't such a bad experience, but I'd be happy to never do it again.

Now I'm slowly getting used to being back at work. My first assignment: scanning photographs of handsome German men for my boss. I don't even ask why!

Welcome back, Monkey. I have been wrasslin' with google docs, and it is pissing me off more and more. I considered trying to transfer what I was doing (a paper for my Masters, with tables and images and stuff), but I don't trust ZoHo either.

I do have an option (something you might be interested in): Dropbox
http://www.getdropbox.com/home

It automatically syncs docs across as many computers as you like. So changes are propagated to your PC(or whatever) when you connect. And it keeps a copy online, so you can't lose it. I threw a few things in there to try it, and now I am redoing my paper in OpenOffice, because the online stuff just doesn't have it, as far as I can tell (and dog slow, too). It is also easier to open multiple documents and kind of "spread them around" the desktop, so you can take use them all.

Give it a try, if it sounds like somethign you can use.

Might be something you want to try.

Excellent! I've soured a little on Zoho since joining up with it, so I will definitely give this one a try. Thanks!
