Had a nicely productive day today... finished my qiv prepatch[1], made a bugfix stable release of aewm and whipped my devel tree into a releaseable state. I don't know why the fonts are still screwy on my setup... if there are no new .debs of X by the time I get back to school, I'll have to try compiling from CVS myself. For now, I'll just blame the implementation and warn people that their heads may fall off if they try to compile it.

I also noticed that after the "incident" last weekend, my laptop's hinges were wobbling oddly. Apparently a screw fell out on the underside, and I have nothing to replace it with. I think the only way I'm going to be able to ask for one from the Clueless Helpdesk from Hell (without a work order and leaving my computer there for a week, that is) is by utilizing the fact that I "know" someone who manages there. Heh heh heh. Not that I really expect them to just have a box of screws lying around, but it's worth a shot.

Hobbit is still around, and answered my email quickly. Cool.

I've also been selling a lot of computer junk I don't use anymore on eBay. If anyone knows how to figure out the speed of a modem by the chipset name/number, let me know. I am a lazy bum and don't want to plug them all in.

I listened to Synthesis on WWUH for the first time since getting back home today. Yikes. Anyway, I had forgotten just how much I'd missed it. If you have a local community station, please support it, because decent radio is really dying out.

[1] ObNewMillennium: yes, I was writing code while everyone else was watching the ball drop/drinking champagne/etc. God, I'm such a dork.
