Well, it's been a while since I posted. You're going to laugh when you read why. Was it was because I was very busy? Well, yes, at one level of indirection. What really happened was that I was busy enough in that first week or two after signing in, that I didn't sign in often enough to really burn my poor l'il new password into my brain. Then, I was busy enough for a few days in a row, that I just plumb forgot the beastie.
This would of course turn out to be right around the time a bouncing baby entered the scene; I could not hold anything against Raph for not getting around to postmaster mail very quickly. Heh. That kid's cute. But anyway, he and I made contact, I have the silly password back, and I think I probably won't forget it this time!
I've gotten some packages at long last from the Glorantha Trading Association. My early sponsorship of their efforts to revive the heroic mythos of Glorantha has me acknowledged as a Rune Master. Two books, one with my real name, one with the name I actually requested. Not sure if that first is a bug or not; at any rate I'm keeping the book anyway, it's signed by Greg Stafford and ought to be a fun read. Okay, not everyone would find pretend mythology fun (some would say, isn't all mythology pretend? I dunno)
Actually, I'll admit, code is fun too. Linux Gazette will be seeing an expansion to the Answer Gang in the next few months. I've been approaching successful in my hacking on Tom's Root Boot (my result now behaves during boot, now I have to finish whacking the scripts to make my expansions out of any given tomsrtbt). With that, I expect to have some more serious fun coding this weekend.
Some movies are fun, some not. Shanghai Noon was lots of fun, as I could expect from Jackie Chan. Toss up whether I liked the bell or tomahawk scene better. Gladiator is also excellent.
