Work: Work was kind of fun. I had to help with an AIX upgrade from AIX 4.3.3 to AIX 5.1. It's scary wiping out a whole server and then pray that it will come back when you do an importvg. It didn't quite work out since we had an automated installer that tried to recreate the filesystem. Oops.

It was also an end of an era. We removed the last of the old generation Auspex servers and we had a nice meal as we put an end to 8 years of troublesome servers. Yay! Tommorow should be fun with a all hands recreational event. Bowling and pizza! :) Looking forward to getting a decent score!

GNOME: Been working on getting the new GTK filechooser into the codebase. It's not very hard. But I haven't been able to get time to do it with everything else going on.

I was very sadden to hear about Ettore. While I've never interacted with him other than a few words here and there. I knew that a lot of people respected him and my heart goes out to those who were close to him. This has been the second death in a month in the GNOME community. It's been a tough time for the Ximian guys. The next drink will be in Ettore's honor.

I have to finish off my OGI (Oregon Graduate Institute) application by tommorow so that I can take classes in the spring!
