Answer to dria's QOD:

Well, where praytell is here? I'm assuming it is Advogato.org since otherwise it would be asking the question so many folks have asked for so long... (where (here == 'earth')). I for one, am on Advogato to write my little ramblings and fragments of thoughts. I also like being able to have a central place to read others diary entries as well. It is very nice to be able to peak into the real lives of other active open source community members. Also, I like the design of the site. :)

Ok, other brain refuse:

I seem to have developed a pattern of writing diary entries every two-to-three days. I simply can't do one every day, and I want to do more than one a week. Seems to be a good compromise.

I've never used a <ol>.

Mozilla gets confused by pressing [TAB] in a text box.

Gabber documentation is looking *very* good. I'm very proud of myself. :) Writing docs for apps is much easier than explaining terms and illustrating compiling/configuring a program. I did two more major sections today and just have Messaging, Preferences and Panel Applet to cover. Does Gabber have a panel applet yet?

Despite warnings by stpeter, I decided to go ahead and start reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. I hate having a book just sitting there without me reading at least a good portion of it. Just bugs me.

I need to go get a new band for my Grandfather's Rolex.. This leather is getting worn off quick (I bought the leather band like in January). Guess I'll have to go with one of those annoying hair-pulling strechy metal ones.

This college thread is very interesting. I may consider writing a piece on it. Unfortunatly, I have no experience in that area yet. I have thought about alot of this before though. The interesting point in this thread is about how college is supposed to teach more than just skills. That is definitly something I want to get out of college.. something more than skills. Of course, I want to take some classes (and possibly some minors/majors) in areas outside of Computer Science.. I am looking forward to apologetics, Biblical studies, and lots of liberal arts (writing & literature). The point really isn't for me to get skills to get a good job, but to do some intense learning. I may think otherwise next Fall though....

There's too many entries in Recent Entries!! There's no way to keep track of them all now.. maybe I need some hierarchy or something...

That's all for now.. gonna go read and listen to Dave Matthews.
