Okay, somewhere along the lines the blue turned into purple. Apparently I am now a Master. Why? It's puzzling me.

Started to rewrite that "lovely" interface cos Mr Meeks told me it sucked and was too complicated (internally). Basically, I think it's problem was it was trying to rewrite a whole load of stuff that Bonobo already has, and it was doing it poorly. Michael also showed me what it should be done like, and he's right. It is a lot simpler to use the pre-written stuff Bonobo has. Although I think some of the simplicity has been removed from writing a summary module (I hate calling them services, cos thats so generic).

Tuned my guitar to GABDEG to learn to play some Sonic Youth stuff. Started with Teen Age Riot. Pretty easy, and a nice song.

Inspired by Teen Age Riot, I decided to download some Atari Teenage Riot. :) Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rawk! Pretty good. Have to buy a CD sometime.

The music companies have heard of my "No CDs till Christmas/December" plan, so they're releasing a whole load of good stuff: Lo Fidelity Allstars, . . .Trail of Dead, and other stuff that I've forgotten. Bastards.

And still I can't find John Kettley is a Weatherman on Napster. *sigh*

Should probably go to bed now. . . Can't think of anything else.
