4th of July

4th of July involved 20 people at my parent's beach house, propping logs up on the beach into holes, food, drink, and lots of illegal fireworks (which the local newspaper advertised as being okay after 6pm on the beach), and burning one of the big logs and waiting for it to fall over (which took a damn long time...)

In other news, I got my Voice over IP phone. Very cool. I was expecting it to sound like ass, but it sounds great. Death to local telcos! (I hope...)

Been cleaning.

I have a bunch of pics I need to upload, but I really need to get new hardware for picpix and launch it. Disk's running tight.

I think it might be time for a new desktop system. My computers have been so ghetto-ized lately, moving parts all around. I want gigabit for my home machines, so my NFS-mounted desktop is quicker (less latency). Too much work, though. Or just not worth the effort... *shrug*
