Now I take my time to add something *today* :)

Got the new TFT monitor from David on monday. Works brilliant and finally a good solution to work on the laptop remotely on a much more ergonomic way.

Things have gotten back to normal since KDE 2.2 has been tagged and the last fixes go in. I can only monitor what's going on on the mailinglist because I have not much more time to respond - and not the energy. Whats fine is that Leon put up a website with the detailed info about his prelink patch:

I should update my website to point there.

When I returned home past 7pm I originally wanted to go to the fair that's happening here this week since last saturday. I hadn't had the time to go there yet and though I originally wanted to go on sunday after the F1 race, I didn't as I went walking for 2 and a half hours. In the forest, I had flies around me which I tried to get off with my hat. I managed to throw at my glasses with the hat and I ended up with having them broken. It couldn't be fixed as the holder was damaged anyway already by me stepping on the glasses while looking for them....to bad, those glasses were titan-flex, cost a lot and I liked the robustness. Went to the optician on monday to get new ones, ended up with reusing the glasses and just buying a new holder. Left the glasses there until I could get them back yesterday. All in all I lost quite some time unfortunately but I hope to catch this up on the weekend. The new ones are quite good and I like wearing them. At least that can be expected for a pair of 236 DM repair...

Didn't go to the fair, still. Maybe tomorrow, maybe over the weekend. I'm supposed to visit my parents by sunday, but maybe I'll stay here and work until monday night when there is another fair at their place that is very famous and the best day is next monday. I will be very drunk if I go so I can't expect to come back here by car until tuesday evening. I'm not yet sure do to it or not.

Took my time to watch that "opposite of sex" movie last night. I had quite some good laughs so I would like to see the non-synchronized version once. Later last night I watched StarWars the return of the jedi which came on TV. There`s nothing better than watching those movies without ads. Enyoyed it a lot, though I *think* I fell asleep on the couch again. I really don't remember, it's happening so often the last weeks and month...I really need someone throwing me off the couch when I fall asleep and drag me to bed.
