Who's cool? I'm cool. (with air conditioning, that is!) [Jul. 10th, 2002|02:10 pm]

Went to pick up my CD Burner which I loaned Dina about, oh... a year ago. Shows how often I burn CDs, eh? (well, I also have the burner on my TiBook, but OS X can blow me.)

She said she's spending the night at my house tonight (if it's okay with me) because it's unbearably hot in her apartment.

And the guy at the gas station commented on how much I must be dying in the heat, with leather. I replied that I have air conditioning, so it's not too bad. "Yeah, but when you come out to your car after it's been baking in the sun?" I replied that I have a garage, so it doesn't get hot.

Ahhh yea'. Yay for garage & AC & automatic ice maker in the fridge. (oh, that last one doesn't have anything to do with that post, but I love ice.)

Time to burn some CDs. I refuse to say what. Sherm, shut-up.

BTW, Justin ... I drove on that road you recommended. Not bad at all. Kinda gentle, though. Next time you're around these parts, I'll show you some even cooler roads. ;-)

couple of things ... mostly off-topic sorry ...

- what do you think of your TiBook? I'm thinking of buying a laptop, probably to run Linux, and I've heard good things about Mac hardware. Any opinion TiBook vs. iBook? anyways, just wondering what your thinking on laptops is.

- fotobilder - are you interested in more developers at the moment? i've done some hacking on phpgraphy, so it's an area i feel pretty comfortable with, and i'd love a project outside work to really sink my teeth into. if you're interested, let me know and i can shoot you my resume or something or you could even give me CVS access and give me a project to see how I do. if not, i'll just wait for a source release and see if I can impress you then :)

My TiBook's awesome, but Linux support isn't wonderful, as it's too new. I haven't checked in awhile.... but it probably improved already. evan has the older generation one, and everything works wonderfully on it.

(to be fair, mine pretty much works... but power management wasn't 100%, and it really needs to be on a laptop to be usable.)

fotobilder ... would love more developers. But not quite ready yet. At this point, my time is better spent typing code than typing instructions on how to work on things that'd be too hard to work on without the foundation. Unless you wanna chat on the phone sometime.

I'm going to try and get a source release out by this weekend that shows what's working so far.

I upgraded my x86 box with X 4.2 Debs (they somehow broke the mga driver in 4.1, lots of bugs filed in the Debian BTS) and it works perfectly. I imagine the PPC debs work pretty well, too.


God, that sentence had a lot of acronyms in it.

your call on FotoBilder ... i doubt i'll have too much time this week. i'd love something to hack on this weekend and wouldn't mind talking on the phone. but if a source release is coming by then that sounds good too.

for the TiBook, I haven't really been following Apple hardware sites or anything. Know of anywhere/anyway to get a decent deal? They're a little steep and though I'm willing to pay, I wouldn't mind having extra money leftover to buy a wireless station or two.

thanks for the advice though.

An ice maker. I am so jealous. It's like a bazillion degrees here, so hot that my roommate and I have soaked our underwear in cold water and then put them on to cool off. Ice would be nice, but the water in the trays hasn't frozen yet. What I wouldn't give for an automatic ice maker...
