This laptop is so incredibly cool it's not even funny. It's even faster then my alpha (but then again my alpha is 3 years old now, showing it's age). Anyway, I guess I must be a geek if I'm this excited about my laptop.

Monday was the first day of LWE, but as of date no real drinking has gone on. The first day we didn't really meet too many people and today maciej and eskil were quite incredibly tired so we went home (we had only one car anyway). Well tommorrow is the gnome party so we'll just have to make up for the lost drinking time.

LWE really sucks as a show. It's so incredibly commercial it's not even funny. We unfortunately went to the michael dell keynote. He didn't actually demo nautilus as was planned though he did mention eazel once or twice. Unfortunately the whole thing was like "Hi I'm Michael Dell, I'm cool, my company is cool, we're better bigger faster then everybody so buy our stuff". On a question of what they are doing for the community he answered something like "we sell lots of linux boxes, our profit margins are high and so people like us". Oh well, that's large commercial companies for you. When I get my own company and make billions .... ummmm ... I'll prolly be just like that and I'll be thinking ... SUCKERS!

So since I was at home most of the evening I did some hacking watched some MST2000 with steph and eskil and did a bunch of hacking (panel + nautilus). I also attempted to do laundry, but some dickhead turned off the dryer and left a note on there that it was too late or something. It was only like 9:30 or so. So my cloths rot in the bathroom now instead of being dry. Oh well.

BTW, apparently the best way to find bugs is in a tradeshow booth when showing people. I just noticed a panel bug when miguel was showing off some helix stuff.
