Have spends since last saturday in hospital when I keeled over at radiotherephy :/ I really was too hard on myself this term at University. Came close to top of the year in everything, but I've been really unwell for the last month so it porbably was a bit much. Am gonna take things way easier in the new year.

Getting out of here tomorrow morning. Thank god, don't fancy spending christmas day in hospital.

Tech stuff
I'm planning on writing a quick guide to getting the acx100_pci working on fedora as well as general stuff I've learned while trying to get it working. Also gonna get as much debug output back to the authors as possible. Gonna try out Dag's stuff as well that he posted up here a while back. Fedora/Linux in general needs to support more wireless hardware out of the box.

Also gonna look into Palm->Linux stuff more. The Evolution pilots in Gnome are great but we really need an app like the quick installer for windows that lets you quickly and easily install software and photos onto the Plam, and eventually access momory cards and stuff. I've gotten a lot of feedback about pilot-link here, sorry I haven't had a chance to look into it yet.

I wanna re-design my blog at some stage. It's quite nice, but I figgure that writing a site from CSS from the ground up would be a good learning experience and I want to some way interesting/different disign. I'm tempted to switch to an Open source blogger, but there really isn't anything that paralells MT yet.

Haven't been involved much of late but my god to things seem to be happening. I think I say this every 6 months, but the next year is going to be so incredible for Gnome. All I want for Christmas is a working ssh: and an ftp: that recognises shortcuts in nautilus so I can browse my remote files easily :)
