I'm supposed to be doing a lot of homework right now. I'm tired and really good at procrastinating. Oh well.

It's been a great week. I love college. It's so great to see everyone again and look forward to all the cool classes that I'm taking. I made my first two CAD models today in lab. That was fun. :) I also went to my first Manufacturing Processes lab... that was a bit scary! I think I'm too much of a klutz to do welding. Oh well.. it'd be a great thing to know.

Ho hum.. Jabber was in Linux Journal again. It's so cool to see that Doc Searls completely "gets" how Jabber is a communication API for applications. It totally showed through in his article.

Our Internet pipe was down for exactly 24 hours (1pm-1pm). Such a pain. I can't even get to my old mail now because the server I use switched to IMAP. It was fun though to see everyone freak out. Everyone just depends on 24/7 Internet connection so much. Kind of a weird feeling.

Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise
Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise
