Wow, it's been a long time since I wrote anything. Somehow my certifcation expired :)

Been working primarily on school. I've been so busy. I will probably be finishing up my degree in the fall. who knows what happens after that in todays economy. when I interned last year at HP my managers wanted me to come back after I graduated, but one of them no longer works there (job cuts) and they probably wouldn't hire me anyway now.

Tux4kids has started going again, and I'm happy for that. Sam's back and as firey as ever (we presently are disagreeing on an issue about whether there should be agroup that decides if a tux4kids project is ready to have a major release or not. I'm glad Sam's back, he and I always have such great debates (i repspect the guy to death, but we almost never see eye to eye on things like this).

Oh, and apparently Tux4Kids needs some money for for it's web-hosting! Dig deep friends, dig deep.

I really don't know what to write in this diary.... I probably wont really maintain it that much because I am so busy at school...

I help out with Tux Typing and I have been having a bear of a time trying to get a patch to upload to the bug tracker on SourceForge. It keeps complaining the patch isn't big enough... but the patch is small and I can't help it! It's just a diff file with like five lines (for counting and displaying number of blits!) Sheesh... so I wound up just e-mailing the patch to Sam, Tux Typing's project manager.

This next week I begin some nasty tests in my classes. I'm taking Math 123 (part of my major) and I'm just not a mathematically minded person... so I am really stressed I'll blow at our upcoming test.
