Jury duty was ridiculously uninteresting. Sat and watched E! for the morning (I hate that channel), then we got dismissed at 11:30 because only the murder trial needed jurors. Went to work after a quick Chinese lunch. My disconnectedness that had its onset Sunday afternoon started to get worse and finally I had the most pervasive headache I've ever had (thankfully, not the most painful). For awhile I could hardly walk. I opted to go home at 3:00 (which drew some more looks -- I'd already waltzed in at 12:30 and came in wearing jeans and a polo, which is hardly dress code) and could barely focus on anything by time I walked in the door. I couldn't lie down, so I put my "new" Creative Labs 3D Blaster Banshee, which had just arrived, into my Windoze box, lemmankinan. (Nice 2D quality, but I'm a bit worried about the weird-looking artifacts in GLQuake. Grabbing Quake II now to see if it's a GLQuake prob, but you'd think with the latest Creative drivers, which seem to be based on the 3dfx reference drivers, I wouldn't have something like that. Humm. If you have ideas mail me.) Anyway, eventually, it all passed. I feel much better now.

Had more problems with CVS. The other server I tried seemed to have the same timeout problems and also introduced a new "protocol error" into the mix that I don't comprehend, the mailing list archives have no idea about, and I don't feel like asking around. So I gave up and went to CVSup for the OpenBSD tree. It seems to be chugging along quite well right now. Hopefully it's as robust on OpenBSD as I remember it from FreeBSD.
