Well, been a while, but a lot of stuff has happened. I actually ended up getting my own team at work to do linux stuff yay. Funnily enough I am to hire folks myself, which is a pain in the arse since I do not want to do any of that. I just want to get some friends and stuff on board and not having to deal with it. Hard to find the right folks. But a challenge is good some times.

One of my friends from Belgium is in town, he is here for work really but he is going to come over this weekend and we are going to hack away sat+sun and then he can go home ;-) thanks bert ;)

more later

Woohow. Dudes... I got my screen, the sgi 1600sw flat panel. awesome! yay 1600x1024 32bit in X... purrrrrfect :)

Well, it was a very good investment :) Iam a very happy camper. came home early today when I saw on the fedex tracking site that it was delivered, it sweet!

So, didn't get too much done at work because of this :) oh well. now its almost time for vger and then probably do some more coding tonight... ta!

Well, had my friends kids visit for a few hours this evening, picked them up from school and they stayed over and watched tv, ADDICTS. Was fun they are cool kids.

All day was hectic, sounded the alarm on a major project I am involved in, because well things are kinda chaotic... Friday meetings will hopefully sort some of the mess out.

Other than that, darned ! sgi sent my flatpanel monitor but I have not received it yet *crycrycry* Hopefully it will be here tomorrow ! yay 1600x1024 lcd baby read it and weep

now time for tv, then hack and bed, mostly hack

Boring day... Waiting for a meeting that did not happen ah well, hopefully tomorrow...
played with nutscrape 4.72, still the same, actually worse, can't use it to go to wellsfargo's website, it says it's not good enough (even tho it IS the 128bit encryption one).. argh...here mozilla mozilla
Then to top things off, taxes!!!!!! what the $%&#%$^... spent all night turns out I have to pay tons of $$ eg $nK where n > 3 ... so I spend a frustrating evening going through my paperwork just to realize I have to pay more, this is so ****** up. wrong absodarnedlutely wrong

even missed vger for this, altho I have it on tape. Oh, I had a voicemail this afternoon from someone, if you ever saw Office space, this guy was like right out of that movie "If you could do that, that would be great" AHAHAHAHAH funny... uzi is still not doing anything on his diary, the dork :)

Well, already tuesday evening, I can't believe this. So much stuff to do, so little time. It was Dilbert night :) funny one too. Had chinese food, spent all day bitching at email. I did not have email access for like half a day, and then there was a huge backlog and it took another half day to get it all in. Oh well at least I could get to my older stuff for a while.
Nothing exciting happened. closed a bug, was not my bug :P added some diskspace. Having some more ideas bout wild new disk stuff. I guess the STP discussion on l-k got me thinking about object based disks. Anyways more later.
Trying to get uzibeatch to post something but he is being a dork about it :)

Dangit. Just realised that I put my home directory on 700 so apache said "duhuh" when going to my homepage ! Hah.
Anyways... Had a long day at work, got in at 8.30 and got home rather late. 7.40ish, which meant I had to bail on dinner with the gang :( Sorry Tali, Boren, Bofh and whoever else was supposed to be at Taxi's in Palo Alto at 7pm.
Got some stuff accomplished today, Found a bug in my code, which I now need to go fix. Long live people writing test suites so they can break your shit. Now its just after 9, finished doing my bills and got some stamps too. I don't like the current online billing thing from Wells, lets just say I don't trust them. Most of the addresses are not there etc... argh. stupid banking system. *burp* had some great vegetable soup tho :) Anyways. Off to watch Ally Mcnekkid err beal. and then back to hacking.

Btw, I agree with uzi that we need a linux cscope type thing. I know there is some similar stuff outthere but as far as I have seen nothing comes close. Maybe we will get this going and get other folks on the train

Seeing how Telsa is pushing everyone to post ;-) This is a tribute to her ;-)

Today was rather boring, I re-orged some of my hardware at home. Made a backup of some important stuf to CD. Went into work, it's sunday afterall.. a workday for the average geek.
