Vacation makes me happy. Gnome doesn't.

Spending 4 days doing absolutely nothing is so refreshing. I need to do it more often.

But, inevitably when returning from vacation, something always goes wrong. Stupid computer wouldn't turn on. Then it decided to magically boot by itself. I don't know why and I don't care.

Gnome can be a PITA. When FC2 came out, I switched to Gnome from KDE, just to see what it's like. For the most part, it doesn't really make a diff to me. But it took me 2 hours to figure out how to add a program into the damn menu. Either I was being particularly dense, or it's not that intuitive. Either way, now I know. And knowing is half the battle.
