  • sick: I’m officially quite sick. This is no fun at all.

  • pedant: The singular form of the drink is “gin and tonic.” The plural is “gins and tonic.” Google finds “gin and tonics” winning over the correct plural form 4870 to 76. It even helpfully offers up “guns and tonic” as an alternative. I’m too sick to enjoy either the singular or plural form of the drink, though.

  • GNOME2: Rocks. Time for 2.0.1. It’s a pity I’m sick.

  • Vacation: Went to the outer banks with my family. I had a lot of fun, and enjoyed seeing my family again. However, I need another vacation to recover from it. Fortunately, I have a four day weekend this weekend. It’s a pity I’m sick.

  • GNOME2: mmeeks came to visit. Good talk about the platform.

  • Birthday: My Granpa turned 80 a few days ago. I sent him an email to wish him happy birthday. He’s doing pretty well, and is even trying to use a scanner now.

  • Birthday (age): When my Grandpa was my age, he had already been shotdown over Belgium, and had made his way to Switzerland through occupied France. I’ve been fighting in GNOME. Sort of puts things into perspective.
