Another busy day today. Fortunately I had a really good sleep last night, meaning I was fully recovered from a weekend of stupid drinking with old friends. I say stupid... I'd do it again and will do it some more in the future. Still, if we didn't do stupid things then we'd probably never have fun.

Being paid to work on Ibex is cool. It's a dream come true for this period of my life. I've started using an ancient app for time keeping called Time Tracker which was last updated in 1997! I did first try GnoTime but it crashed on me twice in less than 60s of usage. Thanks but no thanks. Makes me believe we should all have to dog food with our projects. Still, it looked potentially really good and I look forward to trying it more in the future.

I saw The Passion of Christ last Thursday. Gruesome. It was strangely lacking in anti-semitism given the extent of the complaints, so I felt compelled to start a forum thread about it to see if anybody would justify any anti-semitic claims. [EDIT - found an excellent overview of some of the Biblical discrepencies in the movie.]

Lots of coding to be done. I've almost fixed Box rendering and then I have widget coding to be doing. I spent a few hours last night and today setting up bugzilla over SSH for my employer which was interesting. RH9 dependency hell is not fun, especially when things like perl modules often come in differently-named packages. I'm happy with my Gentoo. Emerge!
