Three geeky things I'm excited about:
- Using apt-rpm, I sucessfully upgraded KDE to 3.1 without breaking anything.
- My pal Russ built a nifty website called blinktag.
- I had a submission accepted at Slashdot on Friday!
Now, if I could just get my lan browsing working, and convince all three of my machines to see (and use) my printer, I'd really geek out.
Huge thank yous to everyone who e-mailed suggestions on printers for my books. I have narrowed the search down to two places, both of them highly-recommended. It's just a matter of figuring out who will cost less, and who will print on recycled paper.
Regarding the previous entry, I failed to point out my long-held belief that we are the sum of all our experiences, including the ones we regret. If I'd listened to my advice to my 12 year-old self, I would most certainly not be the person I am today. To paraphrase a certain bald captain: "I don't want my pain taken away. I need my pain."
Time for bed. I'm taking my family to climb a mountain tomorrow.
