Off to Wales for the church weekend away this afternoon, should be a good time.
One result of having lost that drive is that I was once again presented with the defaults in ULB GNOME. Noticed a small gotcha in the gnome-terminal settings, one gconf key I should have set to false that's set to true. Will fix it and do a brown paper bag release on Monday.
At tigert's suggestion, I'm trying the Mist theme at the moment. It's really nice, small, fast, and the colours are really quite calming on the eyes.
The reimbursement for the camera made it into my account at the start of business hours today, so that's good. Will order it from somewhere else on Monday.
