Started off the day playing with gnome2 which I'd been rebuilding from cvs this week. One or two nice new features and found out a few things about Nautilus that I never knew before.
I then eventually (the Hunagrian Grand Prix distracted me) went back to porting some applets to gnome2 until disaster struck, when grepping the source to some other applets my hard drive started making a loud grating noise. Turns out my 30gb IBM drive has developed some bad blocks an e2fsck -c (thanks to robot101) seems to have sorted it out though and ide-smart (cheers for pointing this out zx64) doesn't seem to think it will fail anytime soon.
This week will probably involve me updating my website a bit more and getting ready for a trip to Ireland on Friday and possibly the purchase of a non-IBM hard disk.
