Ok, things have been crazy this last week.

I ran the Regent Square 5k on Saturday but it sucked. I was completely unprepared and hadn't run any for the past three weeks (hey, I was on vacation). So I guess I should be lucky that I didn't cramp or injure myself embarassingly.

Andrew Gnome builds are progressing nicely. Our hope is to create a complete Gnome environment for andrew here at Carnegie Mellon, maintained by the computer club. Which basically means that we're adding a GNU environment (rebuilding EVERYTHING) for the Solaris boxes. But it will be way cool when it's done, and lots of good karma for the cclub's membership drive.

This morning I went to church for the first time since Easter. The church (the "Ecumenical Church of Light") was definitely non-mainstream sect of Christianity. Anyway, I think it's probably healthy for an atheist such as myself to go to strange churches every now and then. It helps me remember the strengths of religion (which are all too easy to forget) -- the self-empowerment that church-goers receive from being told that they belong and are wanted and are inherently "good", the enhanced social safety net.

School starts tomorrow (woohoo!).
