Down here it's made of wood and wire.

We got furniture, computers, cabling, and whatnot moved into my living room early this week. A lot of time spent setting stuff up, migrating data between platforms (my old windows box is now my GNU/Linux box (kassad), my old GNU/Linux box is now a rather weak file and web server for me to do all my experimental stuff on (cythraul), and my new box runs Windows(malleus)). If you remember the scene from "sneakers" where the h4xx0rz moved into the living room of this well-meaning lady, that's what my living room was like for a while. Now, it's more under control.

Slept for ages today, don't really know why, but I think the weather change of the rainy season is influencing my body chemistry. Got up, finished migrating my work environment from cythraul to kassad, and started workin on the GNOME site again. My todo list is getting shorter for the first time in ages, which is comforting.

Got an idea a while back for a game I want to do when Loom is ready for it. It started out pretty simple, but it's grown, and is on the brink of getting epicish, plot-wise. I think it's going to be pretty original, both in subject matter and parts of the gameplay. Must write down some drafts of the ideas tonight, and get some concept art from Belinda.

List of items for weekend: Finish GNOME site todo list. Small stuff on the Helix site. Random Loom hacking. Finally do the world timezone map for Hans Petter's gnome-admin-tools time and date util. Tell Belinda how much I love her. Answer an interesting mail I got from a guy who red my comments on presence protocols and crypto. Write up game plot drafts.

Things to think about: Iain fixed the Colinear! problem. He's a smart guy. I wonder where Federico went, I haven't heard from him in ages, and there's a desk and chair for him here. An office/living room overlooking one of the busiest streets in Mexico City is cool in theory, noisy in practice. Oh well, loud music is your friend.
