Eclipse is bad-ass. I've been having memory problems with Emacs lately (Since there's no XEmacs for OS X yet, I'm stuck with GNU Emacs) and this month's Dr. Dobbs had three articles on Eclipse (a lot for an issue on distributed computing but I guess you can only publish so many articles on Linda) so I decided to try it out. It really is quite nice. I'm going to use it for the next week or so and see if I can kick a decade-long Emacs habit. I've alredy found replacements for my 10 favorite Emacs plugins.
I used Comcast's On Demand cable service tonight. I watched 6 minutes from The Daily Show. The future happened last week apparently; they sent me a piece of snail mail letting me know that I had it and that it was on Channel 1.
One last thing: if you feel your productivity at work slipping, remember Ole Eichorn's advise and turn your email client off. IM, too. Strangely, it's easy to forget to keep them turned off.
