woody
Was just reading the most recent diary entries, when I scanned pjf's, and saw something about woody being stable. Did a double-take, and wondered if this was just a reference to how generally unflaky it is, or whether 3.0 had come out. And it has - at last! Well done everyone who's involved. Now, the difficult question - stick with woody, or move to sarge? Hmm.

wedding
Went to our friend Wendy's wedding to Carl yesterday, and had a lovely time. I was singing at it, and there was spontaneous applause after I'd finished. I was flabbergasted - I don't expect to be applauded in church! Not in the middle of a service, anyway. I'd put my all into it, though - it's lovely to be able to contribute, and that's what I was able to give. I sang two of Ralph Vaughan William's "Five Mystical Songs" (settings of five of George Herbert's poems) - "I got me flowers" and "The Call" - and was accompanied by one of Wendy's cousins. Spent the rest of the day being congratulated (oh, and eating and drinking lots). Had a wonderful time, even if we ended up going to bed before the bridge and groom left! Good luck to them, and God bless.

reprise
Woody: stable. Wow - I wondered if it would ever happen!

one other thing - spare cycles
Most of the time, my home machine sits at home doing very little, so it's got lots of spare cycles. My work laptop does United Devices processing for cancer, but this is Windows only. I used to run seti@home, but I'm wondering what other spare cycle-using projects other Advogato denizens would suggest for Linux. So - post them, or email them to me. Worth starting an article on this?
