Finally switched from Galeon to Epiphany+extensions. (Without the extensions it would be intolerable.) Final thanks to the Galeon guys for your hard work, and thanks to the Epiphany folks for making yours faster. Now all Epiphany needs to be fully usable are a "clone tab" command, and NoScript. (But JS seems several times faster, so maybe NoScript is not so necessary, except in principle.)

Took my daughter camping for the first time, at Point Reyes. Was too cold for her. Spotted a bobcat, though.

My employer moved office to Emeryville, and now has room to hire people. We need system engineers. Are you one? Write.

In Vegas for the first time ever, for four days. Four days is four days too long. Never been anyplace so dull. Didn't even drop a quarter, but a colleague dropped $1500. Figured it out, though: the entire city is an enormous mini-mall.

Got the DVD of "Star Wreck: Imperial Edition", with completely re-rendered spaceship scenes. Looking forward to "Iron Sky", hopefully well before 2013. Supersonic Aluminum Nazi Hell Creatures from the Dark Side of the Moon, anyone?

Can't somebody please print bumper stickers that say "See Dick Fry"?

cinamod: There's no software solution to a worn-out battery. However, if you decide to buy something new, the Nexblack takes ordinary AA rechargeables, and a CF card, and plays Oggs. No Rockbox for it, though.

mjg59: your diary posting deserves to be an article. It's not too late to do that. Anyway, thank you; it was enlightening.

Contratulations to the Monotone folks on release 0.35. Onward and upward! Thanks to Matthew Gregan for improvements to socketpair, and for making it into a contribution to Monotone. Now I know two MJGs who amaze me. I wonder who the other 57 are.
