misc.:
caught "the dish" last night at indooroopilly megaplex (in brisbane). brilliant movie, i've already sent rob, tom, santo and jane a congratulatory e-mail.

picked up a dexxa optical mouse for $50 ($25USD) and it was an absolute steal. what a beautiful peripheral. i walked back into the office, ctl+alt+f5'ed out of X, unplugged my old Logitech, plugged in the Dexxa, ctl+alt+f7 and i was in business. All 3 buttons functioning, works amazingly with Windowmaker. update: if you have a mouse pad that happens to have a holographic sith lord on it, don't use it. the hologram screws with the mouse's imaging.

work is hectic, hectic, hectic. sign off on my current project is underway, making good project on preliminary work for my next one.

staroffice is finally (l?)gpl'ed. the logical solution would be to use mozilla as the platform instead of gnome-ifying it, but i doubt that'll ever happen with Sun at the helm. They seem intent on making all the mistakes themselves.
