Travel and The Finer Things in Life:
Holy shit. So much to diarize! After much ado, I am back in California. I am on a borrowed box, without my beast. However, it is great to be away from the hell that I call school and back in the heaven of CA listening to Ugly Kid Joe, coding Perl, and eating whenever I want to.
The problem with FreeBSD and X was that for some reason xf86config thought that it would be nice to hook me up with a 256 color server. This problem shall be solved when I switch back to Linux when my machine arrives in the mail. All would be right in the world if it weren't for the fact that Perl 6 is using '.' instead of '->' for method calls.
I landed a job working for Francis Ford Coppola (directed The Godfather Parts I-III, Apocalypse Now, etc) working IT in his various ventures. This makes me very happy. It's a nice way to make some money, pay off my debt, and get some cash for a new computer.
I think that's it, but I shall leave you with this piece of wisdom: "Premature low-level optimizations are the root of all evil."
