there's a home depot in downtown seattle! little things excite me. no more having to go to aurora.

went to joe's last night with kenji & evan and a bunch of other people. good chillin'.

did video loopback stuff again a bit today and got it working, but color's messed up: convert (from imagemagick) returns the RGB bytes in a different order from what V4L wants, so everything's yellow & blueish. i looked into making either side do or accept the other way's, but i might just have to resort to doing a pass over the image buffer and swapping bytes around?? Ughhghgh. Or change imagemagick. Or do it correctly in the first place without all this hacky layers-upon-layers of cross-language popen & open2 stuff. But it works! That was really the challenge.

I think it'd be cool to buy 5 cheap ~$100 monitors and 5 el-cheapo VGA video cards and have X setup with 5 screens and have them all flashing/rotating pictures, with all the monitors mounted on my wall. ... when I have my own place and more space, perhaps.

off to internap now. didn't go the other night .... I just copied 7 GB of bzip files over cable instead, but bunzip didn't work. (grrrr... and gzip doesn't support over 4GB files)

i need to go shoe shopping.
