In other news, not a lot has happened, waiting for slef to get the jewel repository back so that I can start hacking on that again, not seen much wrong recently, but it would be good to finally either owrk out how to bolt a true external root menu in or to get our own in.

Also, finally got my comfy computer chair half sorted. If only the rest of life was so simple as stuff that can be machined, huh? ;)

Seems a little bit of a shame that Intel are being sued again, and by the same company no less... will they ever learn not to steal patented material? Ah well, long live AMD is all I can say :)

It appears that Microsoft are going to appear at the UEA this friday, Chicago was planning to do something on that day to promote linux. Personally, I think that the linux promotion needs a lot more planning and thought, there's not enough time before friday, and, more to the point, it seems a waste to try to fight Microsoft, rather than listen, and the produce a list of alternatives. The latter stands a better chance of winning at the end of it, and could, in fact, bring a lot more students in to the game.

Hrm. Back to the red wine I think.
