Well, here I am, posting from my (very) slightly-tweaked version of ithought. Definitely a fun program. I'm sending off a patch to voltron and I've got RedHat 7 rpms built too. Whee!

Today (Friday) was (insert ominous music) Cable Modem Day. Why in hell they can't call you before coming by in the gigantic four-hour window they set aside is beyond me (if only I had that leeway with _my_ clients!). Yes, I finally broke down and ordered cable modem service. Being stuck on my 56k modem pining away for DSL access finally became too much. Just watch, though. DSL services will be rolled out next week, and I'll be cursing up a storm..

A friend of mine dropped off a copy of Solaris 8 for x86 earlier this week. Should be interesting to try it out. I'll probably play around with it tomorrow to see what it's like

Spending some time poking around ithought gives me some interest in learning some gtk programming. Marked myself as a contributer to the project, and hopefully after I learn a bit more about gtk I'll be able to upgrade myself to a developer. Hmmm. An interesting thought just popped into my head: Combining ithought with cdent's advogato sucker. Read your favorite people's diary entries while writing your own. Hmmm....
