i ramble and go nowhere. [Nov. 10th, 2000|10:32 pm]

getting distracted --- started working on a dozen different things. making progress on them all, but slowly for each. i then downloaded AIM and ICQ and got really distracted... I hate AIM and ICQ for Windows. Windows users: you don't know what you're missing until you've used ICQ and AIM on Linux. They're so much easier to use... no clutter, no bullshit, they don't take 5 mb of memory each. There are no stupid banner ads or stock tickers or e-commerce tie-ins.... stupid stupid Windows. The OS is fine (NT and 2k anyway), but the software for Windows is just terrible. The UI on ICQ 2000b is the worst piece of shit I've ever seen. GnomeICU is so much better... so clean, so simple.

in other news, i ran out of salsa chips without salsa, but i'm not sad. salsa chips without salsa suck. and i finished my iced tea. for that, i am sad... i must go upstairs and get more. but this chair is so comfy.

in yet more news, i used vi for the first time today for something real.... i edited my crontab with it. emacs is cool, but i need to stop using it and learn vi well ... vi is so small and fast. emacs = too damn slow.

okay, i closed AIM ... back to work.

i seem to recall gnomeicu having a command line option (-a, perhaps?) that avoids going to the panel and instead loads the main window right away.

i'm on a windoze machine now though, so i can't verify that.
