games: We bought Pikmin 2 tonight. Zana promptly beat me in multi-player mode while claiming to be unable to figure out the keys.

Most excitingly, they have Douglas Adams’ “Bureaucracy” available. I […]

File Chooser: Federico and I moved our TODO lists into bugzilla. The length is a bit oppressive, but they’re slowly falling. After our work today, the Save dialog is looking a lot nicer. I brought it up in the gimp and found it pretty darned usable. Also, I’m getting a patches from others, which is […]

Laptop: My laptop arrived!!!! Woo hoo hoo. Repartitioned it to add a wintendo partition, but it mostly works. Then I tried to install network drivers for the pcmcia card I have for Windows. That was a total disaster. I think I’ll have to reinstall it tomorrow. It was nice getting a laptop from dell to […]
