So as the latest hurricane approaches Florida, it reminds me of when I was back in high school that hurricanes were actually exciting. The chance to miss school, go surfing with decent waves, hurricane parties. Now it is just a huge hassle with people running around worried for days before and after. They issued a mandatory evacuation for the Tampa/St Pete area yesterday, when in my opinion they had no idea where the storm will go. They are actually having problems getting everyone moved out in time (like elderly care facilities) because of our horribly insufficient highways in Central Florida. Now it seems it will land near Ft. Myers which is about 150 miles south (I am on the other side of the state and completely safe). At least my nephews got out of school but they are too young to appreciate that.
In other news, monop in cvs is new and improved and should even have the much requested but never before done MONO_PATH support. For example, MONO_PATH=/some/silly/path/to/assemblies monop -r:blah.dll
