Robert Mibus: Saturday

Another excellent day!

Ben came over with his kids, and we watched the combined six-kid circus while our respective wives strutted their stuff at the gym. Later, Ben and I took our two eldest children each to the pool. (Yes, I went to the pool again! :).

After thrashing around for the better part of an hour, we went home to hot chips for lunch. General chit-chat was followed by Ben and I escaping the rabble for a quiet drink and some browsing at JB's at the local mall.

I'm happy to say that my "requirements" for my next laptop should be easily met far cheaper than I'd anticipated. (I want at least a Core 2 Duo, 1GB RAM, Bluetooth, webcam). Alas, nobody has any n800s or n810s yet. I really just want to know if they're actually pocketable!? It looks like it is... just... Anyway, I'm planning on buying one for my birthday (early, if I can manage it ;).

Missy made us all some Chinese for dinner, yum! More chatting, then it was time to say goodnight to Ben, Helen, and all of the kids. Ours got tucked away, and were so worn out they nodded off pretty quick.

Missy recently went to bed, we got some great chatting time in-between.

I'm about to watch more Quantum Leap, but here's a quick recap of 5x01... I didn't like it. New music, ugh. Preferred the S3/S4 title sequences. The whole multi-leap thing was almost pointless, and the mixing of mesons etc. stuff annoyed me endlessly. It was needlessly different from a regular QL episode, and I can't say I liked it. It also dragged on longer than it needed to (it was a double-length ep).

Anyway, time to watch another ep or two before I fall asleep!! :)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
