splashy, i think, is no good. maybe it was because i forgot to rerun lilo after i had recompiled the kernel… and i had forgotten to change lilo’s vga to 791. and for a while i thought i had messed up the c compiler, which would have been bad … and completely nonsensical. and xauthority was messed up again… (note to self: chown the home directory).
i really liked ‘idlewild’ by nick sagan. can’t wait to read the sequels.
an adventure to attend a uw engineering info session sounded like fun, until i realized what a bitch the possibly hazardous return trip would be.
