Starting to enjoy these diary entries, only my second one. I'm afraid to hack on projects at work, but I have nothing better to do. Working on an ugly gnome clock, it's fun. I also need to start work on the backend to a dating service for my school, if I ever want to get it off the ground.

LWE is in a few weeks, I really want a laptop, I can't justify dropping 1.5-2 grand on a laptop. I've been trying to scorunge up a pentium laptop with a CD lately, with no luck. Hey, if you've got a laptop you're willing to sell or donate, please contact me. I need to be able to do some mobile hacking.

Gah, ripped the mobo out of my linux box last night. had to deal with a windows box. No mail. Pissing me off. i woke up, sat down at my desk, and stared at all the cards and chips and memory on my desk. My case just has the HD's and CDROMs in it now. BP6!. I can't wait. Getting it today, install it tomorrow, hopefully 2.4 will like it more. I'm only putting my IBM 20G HD on the ata66 channel, everythign else is going on the ata33 channels.

Right, my dad told me to put all the cards on aluminum foil when I asked him about a static free surface. Something inside me says "BAD!". But my dad's a hacker from the atari days. He's a hacker. Digital logic, eproms, asemmbler, squeezing everything into tiny spaces, cool shit. He did amazing stuff on the atari, all vision training. 3D, random dot stereograms, and some stuff involving the vertical blanking that I don't fully understand. So I'll trust him, he's still better with ahrdware than I am. I jsut don't like the idea of cards on metal, dunno why.

Time to go code pixels!
