Racing against a vacation deadline, I've been getting a tremendous amount done. I've found fixes to three of the four customization requests Eugene has filed for gnome-db2html3, in the process learning some more cool things about how to solve problems using libxslt. I was getting frustrated with it, and found it amazing how much help the simple addition of an emacs major mode - xslide - can be. Color coding of text is such a conceptual help for me.

Which brings me to vacation.

Off on Saturday to Mesa Verde to camp for a few days. It's a favorite spot of ours - nice camping in a small high valley, the most amazing Anasazi ruins. And this year, big fire damage from a wildfire last year! That might sound bad to some, but it's actually fascinating. We've been going there for years, and you can see the changes wrought upon the landscape by fire, which is a natural part of the western landscape.

Then we're going on to Ouray, in the high mountains of Colorado, to hike and lounge by a pool and bask in hot springs. If only I could figure a way to take my bike. But alas, it won't fit in the little Subaru wagon. Maybe there will be a rental shop.
