Golfing, Tweeting, And Plurking (But Not Necessarily In That Order)

I'm starting my mini-vacation today.
Which is precisely why I'm sitting here working.
I'm working because I couldn't Plurk.
It seems Plurk has similar congestion issues as Twitter, and wasn't available for Plurking this morning.
I'm different that way, in that most people Plurk or Tweet so they don't have to work. As I mentioned in my post yesterday.
In any case, I'd rather be golfing than Plurking or Tweeting.
Which is precisely what I'll be doing in a few hours.
But before I start golfing, I thought I would along some noteworthy news (news which I cannot Plurk or golf).
IBM Lotus Symphony turns 1.0 today.
Happy Birthday, LS.
Symphony is a free and easy-to-use office productivity suite downloadable from the Internets.
We estimate that a company with 20,000 employees could save $8 million in software license fees (or more than $4M in software renewal fees) if and when they moved over to Symphony.
There have been over 1M downloads since the Symphony beta program first launched in September of last year, and it's now available in 24 languages (It's also worth noting that it was developed by a global team working out of Beijing), and also now has an Elite support option.
So, thank you to those of you who downloaded the early versions of the software, and especially those of you who provided feedback via the Symphony site. It was much appreciated, and it has already made the product that much better.
Speaking of better, if you wish to send me well-wishes and encourage me during my golfing, feel free to Plurk or Tweet me at "Turbotodd."
That is, if you're not working.
