Fun weekend. Couldn't get into any nice place for Dinner on Sat, so I bought some really nice steaks from the butcher and grilled them up on the BBQ. They were to die for!

Fixed my Father-in-law's POS HP system. It was running win98SE w/ only 64megs of ram, and a good year or so worth of software crap that most people pile on it. Removed about 3lbs of dust, upgraded the ram, and installed a CDRW drive. System works a bit better now.

Had a brunch meeting for work to go over some R&D stuff. Lots going on, but most of it is coming to a end real soon, so lots of new products to launch and worry about. YaY!

New video card is on it's way, as well as a new keyboard and mouse surface for work. When I was at the PC store for the ram and CDRW I saw the new Logitech MX 900 mice, it's just like the MX700 I have at home (wireless,rechargeable , very very nice) but it's bluetooth! VERY cool. I'll probably buy one for home, and take my MX700 to work.

Dug some more into learning python. Studying up on pygtk now. This is very neat stuff, very easy to make simple graphical applications. I can make use of this at work very easily. I need a pdf of the pygtk stuff, I hate reading manuals on computer monitors, and the html stuff just isn't fun to print a page at a time. Anybody got anything?

Time to do some more legacy stuff before the weekend is over. *sigh*. They just don't make them long enough anymore.
