I finally got a car, after looking for the past few months. Yay! I just wanted something to commute with that was reliable. It’s amazing how hard it is to find something decent with those specifications. Ended up getting a ‘92 Acura Integra Hatch. I’m way pleased. Now Deena doesn’t have to make the daily decision of driving my ass to work or being carless.
Started using my ipod again. 4000 songs on random makes some pretty interesting songs come up - I forgot I even owned some of the stuff. Hearing it is kinda fun. Gwar’s ’Ham on the Bone’ is one of the best songs ever in entertainment value.
Upgrading my work machine to 5.2-RELEASE tonight, starting the make world before I leave. Maybe there is proper kernel support for this AC97 chip, finally. I didn’t bother to check. (shrug) Hopefully there won’t be a smoking crater where my machine was when I walk in tomorrow. (5.1 to 5.2 should be an extremely smooth upgrade, so that’s pretty unlikely.)
I was unable to check any personal email today, as my home connection was dead dead dead. Comcast seems to have random days like this where someone pulls a plug or wipes a route. They really need to get their shit straightened out, as this is getting old, and their service is much too expensive to have to deal with 12+ hours of continuous outage. Laaaaame!
