Called around everywhere, but didn't reach anything of anybody of consequence, so I played phone tag all day.

Yesterday I had a talk about a part-time web development position with somebody... I think maybe a part-time gig would be pretty good because I can freelance on the side to make things happen for myself, and still get a bit of income. I'll think about it and see. I also applied for a couple of jobs in town, and I need to do followup calls on Monday, so I'm doing it with my fingers crossed.

I got a call last night at 0100 from a friend of mine who crashed her Debian box (or at least uninstalled lots of packages that she needed). So, I talked her through installing them back on. She's a total guix but her husband is a linux diehard (nazi) and she has broken her box about 12 times so far, and she didn't want to tell him that she broke it again. Well, anyway, I'm fixing boxes in the late hours of the night, and I think it's funny. At any rate, I'm off to Corvallis to meet her tomorrow and do some LUG stuff there.... I'll take some more "religious tracts" to distribute.

Speaking of religious tracts, I should scan one of the little buggers and throw it up someplace along with a history of it. Maybe I'll take that up as my next offbeat project.

I ripped some mp3's from some Russian CD's I had lying around... that's about the only thing that I'll digitize, just because not many people would have them. These are CD's I got when I was in Moscow... one Vladimir Vysotskij and a compilation of pop music from one of the Russian recording houses. I had to write the CDDB entries all myself even, so I'm pretty impressed at how rare they are.
