I guess I've grown more pretentious again, or something, but here's another attempt to keep a diary. We'll see how it goes.

Red Carpet is doing well, but I'm feeling a little bit deflated right now. I guess I'm feeling overwhelmed by how much all (and I do mean all) of the linux distributions and package managers suck. It's really depressing.

My project that goes well is Mr. Rupert's Ripping and Encoding Tools, also known as the Networked Fast Simultaneous Helix Unified Ripping Tools (NFSHURT). Basically, it's a couple perl scripts that lets you turn the ogg-ification of your CD's into a highly streamlined and automated process. It's pretty cool; we've done 21G of music in 5 days or so. Not bad, eh? Oh yeah, I'm getting some help cleaning up my scripts and then I'll add them as a project here.

Jacob got drunk Saturday night. LOL

Our apartment continues to not be finished, and it's like dealing with 3-year olds when talking to our landlady and the contractor. Sigh.

I'm glad there's IRC.

Oh, and aaronl is an idiot. An unabashed idiot. I probably shouldn't say that, and it's not Helix policy, but in my opinion, he's a complete idiot. I wonder how he even got to be an intern at VA?
