!work-three day weekend, bliss. s and i are hiring a car and then just driving. no idea where we are going, just follow where the road takes us.
rant-why oh why oh why is the MS telnet client such a shite piece of software? why? how can anyone be even the least bit satisfied after having created that? i would be embarrassed to the point of refusing to release it and deleting the source. it's crap. it doesn't do very much, and it doesn't do it well, so why even bother. and the really sad thing is that it's been that bad for the last umpteen releases of windows with no change. priorities, that's the problem. too interested in the things that sell the software to worry about actually making it work. that for me is the main difference between open source and commercial software. as soon as you do anything purely for the money, you can kiss quality good bye. argh! doesn't anyone take any pride in what they do any more?
i'm going home before i break something.
