Beautiful day rowing (I row crew in a four-oar boat). Did some exercises: pause and hold, cut the cake, and double pause. Almost no wind and moderate temperatures. Hard to beat a day like this one, except that the heel strap on the stretcher for my seat had a loose screw. Said screw put a hole in my heel which hurts like hell now.

Got the Canon BJC-250 printer going on my wife's redhat box. Searched and searched through linuxconf looking for the printer configurator. Oops -- it's in printtool, not linuxconf. Or maybe it is in linuxconf, but I couldn't find it, so it may as well not be there.

Installed Word Perfect because she had been using WP6 for Windows previously. WP was no help -- it didn't have a BJC-250 driver. I had to install ghostscript's bj600 driver using printtool, and configure WP to print postscript.

Thank God for postscript, and ghostscript! Unix printing would be a nightmare without them.
