Today was a pretty good day. I went out and spent some money and got a little to to get some coding done.

My wife, zab, and a couple of friends went out to Ikea to buy some funiture and things for the home. We got some "authentic" Swedish bagels and sandwiches and started our inpulse driven shopping. Amazingly enough, my wife and I agreed on almost everything we wanted to buy. The couch that we wanted wasn't in stock so we ended up putting one on reserve. Hopefully they should have that in sometime in the beginning of March. Once we get a couch we'll be able to watch our one channel of tv in style. They play a lot of hockey on tv here. I watched two hours last night.

We did end up buying a chair that we really both liked for the living room. We also bought a real dining room table and four chairs to go with it. I've never owned real dining room funiture before. I've always had that college student furniture where the table legs have been chewed on by three different dogs and where the chairs have been used as cat scratching posts.

I also got some time to work on a couple of bugs. Pav checked in a work around for 28216 but didn't really fix the problem. After getting a little timeshare on Owen's brain we managed to figure out the real problem and I cooked up a fix. I also fixed another bug that's been sitting on my plate for a while. I also fixed some misspellings that were causing problems.
