Free Software

I checked mozilla out of CVS and built it. I'm trying to get involved as a janitor in the project. We'll see, I'm not sure my skills are good enough for me to produce any worthwile patches for them.

Personal

The move from Miami, Fl. to Gainesville, Fl. went smoothly. I've been here for about a month now and it's nice to be back. My internet is provided by a wireless project sponsored by the city and aimed at mending the digital divide. It's really nice.

I spent Christmas in Boston with friends and family. It was really nice to get up there. I had a few days to enjoy the city so aside from the requisite pub crawls, I went to visit the MIT campus and Harvard Square, and where the Novell offices and (old) Ximian offices where. Of course, I visited Fenway too and a bunch of other places and spent some time just walking around the neighborhood, the houses there and the baseball field remind me of when I was a kid. I love the T. I love that city. This is gonna be the year for the sox. I wish it wasn't so expensive to live up there, damn gentrification.

Work

I think I've finally gotten the "hang of" work. Hopefully this should result in more free time for free software. I'm already finding myself with more time now that my major project is done, most of it so far has been spent catching up, but I'm almost caught up. It's so weird to look back and see like this 2-year hole in my life where I gave up everything and just focused on that project. *shiver*
