Rant about the weather

Damn it's cold here. I'm sure there are other places in the US that get colder, but 1) I'm not used to it and 2) the stupid banks here won't lend me money for a car so I have to cycle to work in the snow. Apparently, because I have an H-1B visa they think I'm going to take the money and run back to Ireland. I also haven't managed to get a credit card yet.

Boulder is usually a lovely place to cycle round, they have cycle paths away from the traffic that follow the creeks that run through the town. But when the paths are covered in snow and ice and you are worried about sliding off into the creek, it's not so enjoyable.

Still, lots of fresh air and exercise can't be bad.

Work

Getting back into 3dwm development quite nicely.

My girlfriend was unable to find work in the US (legally) so she had to go back to Ireland. I miss her, especially today with it being Valentines day.

It does mean though that I have a lot of free time which I'm using to hack on 3dwm.
