stuff

I had a reasonable accommodation post all written up, but I hadn't updated XJournal for Jaguar. If you're a user, go download 1.06b2 before you write anything you want to keep. Aside from that, my Leopardfication has been pretty smooth, and I think that Spaces and some of the little interface enhancements and increased tweakability will be good things. The one bothersome thing is that the new window chrome is so bland that foreground windows look like a background windows (and the background windows look ghostly). It also feels a bit more responsive and zippy, which is always nice. When I have a bit more cash, I'll probably still bump the RAM up, though.

Three years ago last Sunday, Elizabeth and I took a walk to the park on Greene below the highway, and talked and kissed and started making a go of stuff. Pretty soon, we'll have two anniversaries to keep track of. On Sunday we had a nice supper at the Black Tomato and... talked and kissed and stuff.

I also did the traditional failing of the first road test last Wednesday (on the first snowy day of the season!). The roads are safe from me for another month or so.

I'm pretty much camped out down here by de l'Eglise with four cute furry mammals, adequately patched Internet and pretty much set up.

Back up the hill, the bugs have been hit with my latest bout of chemical warfare, this time with a thorough swabbing of the floor with bleach solution to kill any eggs 'twixt the floorboards. I fully intend to win this time. They'll now starve for a few seconds, then break two eggs over resulting mixture and stir continuously until egg is cooked and broken up. It will look like ground meat and pick up some goodies, see city hall, a soon-to-be-cut-back Marks and Spencer Food Store and the London bridge and some random bits of London. Tonight: pack, take stock, read proceedings, do whatever I’ve forgotten, and get some sleep for a day or so to unwind with the folks, pick up mail and rearrange electrical appliances to reduce the crushing fee disparity between in-province and out-of-province students, because I think that the GSA and the CSU are capable of working more closely on projects of mutual interest, and because Ezra and the rest of the world should stop whining and help the US subdue Iraq, and how our cherished freedoms and processes ought to be changed. I wish we’d talked about classes, gossip and D&D instead...

My incoming e-mail is down, so if you need to reach me, use other channels, or comment down here (I'll check the old-fashioned way, and it's screened for your convenience).

When things are back to normal or I come up with a more elegant workaround, I'll post again.
