Longish weekend. Tried to clean up my office a bit, made one more usable PC, stripping yet another one to sell for parts. My desk is still a mess though, should clean it up some time.

I need some "to-do" software, that is a quick/dirty tool of listing tasks that need to be done. Anybody got any suggestions? Right now I'm just using "Sticky Notes" in gnome.

Rolled out an updated libtool for QA testing in Fedora Legacy. Very obscure race condition that will only be reached if mktemp fails for some reason (like somebody deleted it from the system). Just needs some more people to look at it. Seems a few packages need either 7.2 or 8.0 or both QA before we can do anything with them. I'm going to continue with my policy of timeout on testing, and just push them if they've gotten good 7.3 feedback. If something breaks, thats really sucky, but perhaps it'll motivate the community to kick in some 7.2/8.0 love. It was the community that persuaded me to include 7.2/8.0 in the first place.

Going to try and learn Python. Got a couple books, reading them from time to time, doing some practice stuff. Seems pretty fun for now.
