Well, school is alright so far. The new schedule is completely illogical. Unfortunately, the school revised their policy of using library computers -- you must do only school work on them. This is very stupid especially since they are not used most of the time either. I am planning a way around this however...Worked on GtkHx today trying to implement XText widget, however it is being stubborn. Is anyone here familiar with it? I copied the examples from X-Chat and Gnapster and when I insert text it does not display...

Have my work cut out this weekend: buy school supplies, setup my UPS backup, setup my tape drive, do homework, and figure out the fricken bug in my code...

Also, I've noticed something very very evil. One, I saw a student trying to login to some "Yahoo Investment Challenge" and it complained that he needed a parent's permission to use this. What the hell is up with that? They don't have the right to do that! Just because a person is under 18, a "minor", doesn't mean he/she has to ask parents all the time if he/she can take a piss or play some goddamn investment challenge. Goddamn crackheads...The present world is a pretty screwed up place.
