For the past few days I have inexplicably turned into a hi-fi nutter, attempting in vain to get some sort of good reproduction of my old vinyl before a go off to school. For some reason it's made me very tired. I guess I'll have to wait... (note to self, find drivers which actually record for the Thinkpad 390 sound chip so I can take the computer to the turntable and not vice versa. Harumph.)

Pulled two packages of muddleftpd from Incoming in two days due to denial-of-service problems. I'm getting a bit annoyed at the author. Have resolved to conduct better (and longer) testing, and not believe anyone when they say "it's fixed". After patching it a bit things seem to be OK. Unfortunately this has distracted from my other goal, which was to get upstream to reorganize the tree.

Mozilla completely fell over today. Will probably post from Nav for a while. <fx type="grumble" direction="sheriff(today)" />

Today I learned (by way of my grandfather, for whom we purchased one) that I-openers don't deal with 'pre-formatted' text very well. Or tabs. Or something. It's more complicated than monospace/proportional fonts, at any rate. Incidentally I just went on a rampage and removed tabification from most of my files (and my editor).

Have a SCSI card for this machine finally. Whee!

azz: no worries! I still need to work on some stuff before I can use your input, and I'm kinda busy. I better stop goofing off and work on that so that I can put this out before school starts, if you get back to me before the week is out.

decklin: work on godawful sentence structure. See several examples above.

Ryan: you are the greatest. keep posting here, please.

I highly anticipate tomorrow's Jerkcity. <fx type="duck&run" where="very very far" />
