In the past year or so, my friend Moliére has really become one of my closest friends. We talk fairly constantly, about our lives, our feelings, our plans, hopes and dreams. He's a wonderful guy.
He's come down to visit me and go to the munch, and even hang out at The Crucible together.
That stopped when he moved from the east coast to Colorado, sadly.
Then he decided to move to Fiji.
Yes, Fiji - the island nation on the other side of the planet.
Ironically, the father away he moves, the closer we seem to get. We Skype constantly, and we're even starting an amazing web project together. Now Fiji is between 16 and 20 hours ahead of my time here in Washington, DC, depending on daylight savings time.
That can be tough to keep track of. But luckily, my clever friend found a good solution. It's this little app called Mach Clock, that shows the time in various cities, in a little window that stays open on your desktop.
It's very handy. It makes it very easy for me to see just what time it is where he is. Not that I'm going to tell him that just now, seeing as it's about 1:30 in the morning there.
