Zoner en fuego!

Catching up...

Well, I'm mostly caught up. I still have a pile of email to dig through - looks like a mix of personal and PMX stuff. Last night I managed to slog through over a week's backlog of LJ. That took literally all night. :-) So I ended up sleeping a good part of the day - which was very welcome. Nothing like sleeping in your own bed. The bed my parents have in their guest room is WAY too soft for me. I'm a big guy, and it offered little support. So I didn't sleep through the night while I was there, and I'd be a little achy in the morning. I also caught up on Orkut - but OK Cupid is still migrating from development to production so I haven't been able to get in yet.

I've just been watching Witch Hunter Robin - it premiered tonight on Cartoon Network. I'd heard about it but hadn't seen it yet. It looks like it will be interesting. (Not too late to catch it, it re-shows at 3AM.)

Anyway I'll try to finish my catching up in the next day or so. Stick with me.

I'm really excited about this. I've been a fan for a while now but this will be the first time seeing her perform. Well, I hope - I emailed BiLAGA tonight to see about details for alum's to get tickets. She's doing some other shows in the area that I might try to catch as well. I haven't been this excited about seeing an artist since I first met Ani. :-)

It is a good book

You're Watership Down!

by Richard Adams

Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're
actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their
assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they
build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd
be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits.

Eris! This is taking forever!

I need to do some work under Perl 5.005 on a FreeBSD box - but I also need to get some modules from CPAN. So I figured I'd setup CPAN and use the client, as I've done before. So I ran 'install Bundle::CPAN'... and it has been plodding on for several HOURS now (like 3 at this point). I swear it is updating *everything* as a dependency. I'm seriously tempted to abort and then just install the modules I need manually...


it just error'd out because it has filled / to 109%?! No room on the file system... Damn it... *mutter*

New toy

My Cybertool arrived while I was away and it was waiting for me at the office - and now it is in my hip pocket. Ah, it has really felt weird not having a knife on me for the past several weeks. I've been carrying one for over a decade pretty much every day. It is part of dressing for me.
