Garrett LeSage is traveling the northeast US trying to get some good autumnal colors and just generally having a good time on a well-deserved vacation. He was in Pittsburgh last night and today and dropped by CMU campus to hang out. It was fun talking with him about what he's been up to at Red Hat and with life in general... I think last time I saw him was 2 or 3 LinuxWorlds ago. 'twas fun. Thinking about it, Linux really has come a long way from a few years ago. There are a lot of things which now Just Work. It's quite spoiling :)

It is kind of nice to not be particularly concerned with anything for a change... I really am not deathly afraid of getting low grades in my classes right now. Basically, I either am going to get into the HCI program, at which point I'll go for a masters and my undergrad intro classes won't matter much in the long run, or I'll switch to something completely different and... my undergrad intro classes won't matter much in the long run. So screw getting stressed over papers for English class or Freshman Seminar (I do of course still do them with a decent amount of effort -- I just don't stress like I did over this stuff in high school). In the end, it doesn't even matter. I'll spend time learning what I want to learn.

Apple gave presentations today... I think I need to work for them at least once. mmm... usability.

I got O'Reilly's "Mac OS X for Unix Geeks" -- looks pretty good so far. I love my TiBook.
