It's eleven o'clock and I'm so ecstatic. Finally get to work on just systems stuff. Recently shuffled back to LinuxPPC from Mac OS X Server on my G4 at work. Feels like getting back into comfortable jeans. MOSXS is pretty sweet. I used NeXTSTEP back in college a few times. Came pretty close to nabbing a NeXT slab, ran OPENSTEP on my intel box. Bah. Still a pain in the ass.
Got to write a long winded letter to Chris today. I've been reading his diary entries, silently agreeing with him. When I worked with him back in Indiana, I really coveted his job.
sidenote: I've noticed that Matt hasn't posted any diary entries. I imagine he's got lots to say, but I reckon I `talk` the productivity out of him.
I don't really have a plan for urbanape. I had the notion once that I'd try it out as a living resume. Put up lots of the functionality I create for clients: logins, dynamic content, nice design. Bleah. Who knows? Really, who cares? A friend pointed out, looking at the s00perfly site of a web design firm, "Now there's a place with no clients." Seems true. Busy firms don't always have time to have the prettiest sites.
One of our instructors gave me a brand new IBM WorkPad c3 (basically a rebranded Palm Vx). Sweet little machine. I've got half a dozen Infocom games on it. Get my daily news from half a dozen sources. Got Froggy and Bubblet to feed the monkey on my back. Getting contacts in there one at a time. I love it. Can't seem to use it for "real" work though. Can't seem to bring myself to care.
I want out of this design gig.
