Laleedaaa... Welp, March was fast. February was fast. January was fast. I remember hearing about when your under 20 life always seems slow. I've never experienced that. My life has always gone fast. That's probably not a good thing.

I've noticed a couple of things since I found http://www.advogato.org/recentlog.html. (Wow was I stupid to not find that page. I always wondered how people were keeping track of other folks diary entries so easily... here I was clicking on users.. sheesh.) Everyone has some very unique diary styles. There's Iain who does little phrases with bullets. Then there's crackmonkey who has bold headers over each paragraphs, sometimes the headers have little to do with the topic. That's cool. And well.. I guess there's not too many other styles. I just ramble. I wonder if anyone cares. Oh well, I like writing down what I'm doing... It helps me focus more.

I stayed up very late last night writing some more User Land docs for JabberCentral. I also tried to get all of the libs required for Gabber installed on my notebook. That didn't go over well. I've still got some weird errors. Today I really hacked at a Gnome Manual page for Gabber. I'm very happy at how that is turning out. No offense to Gnome folks, but most apps right now have such little documentation. I don't want x-virge's little baby to go without the best docs.

My summer is looking quite happy. While I don't have anything major planned (no camps or anything), I've got Freshman orientation at LeTourneau University, Sergeants at Arm at the Texas state Republican Convention and probably a couple of Linux / Open Source conferences. I may try to go to Cornerstone Fest with my friends... I dunno about that. I'm not sure if I'd get totally sick of music or not be able to get enough of it....

My server is plugging along quite happily. The only problem is that I've only got two patch cables. Most annoying to switch my box and my notebook.... (I've got three computers on this little network.)

I hate April Fools. All the jokes are so stupid. Call me a grouch.. whatever. It's just dumb. I do have to admit that Google's little joke was good.. but the rest, blah. Especially Slashdot. Geeze! Last year when they did I got *so* turned off to Slashdot.

Ok, enough babbling for now. I'll go write somewhere else now.
