Much has changed, and largely for the better. On Sunday I finally got a much fixed version of Gtkdial out into the world. I sometimes wish I could consign my ancient, horrible code to history's dustbin, but people keep using it and sending patches, which is really quite wonderful of them!

Monday was job interview day - the long search for employment had left me somewhat resigned and dejected - the upside of this was that I barely cared what happened, so I was actually able to go in and be real - none of the usual "interview" games we all indulge in. Anyway - I got the job. Its still outside the realms of IT - which suits me because it means I get to participate in all this stuff for fun - but its secure, better paid, and finally away from the Department which stole my soul seven years ago.

So, a couple of weeks off work now to play catch-up in studies (seriously neglected during the doldrums).
