Yesterday I pushed a review of "Apache Desktop Reference" out the door via e-mail. Received a acknowledgement back and note not to worry about getting a cover image. Both nice.

Today I pushed a bit of documentation out. It required pushing myself. I promised I'd finish this. I just want to be finished with that project. I figure I have a couple of days before I will get enough responses back that I have to do the rest of it. There should be a day or two to work on some of the fun pieces.

I hooked up the new 17" LCD flat panel display. I shifted from 1024x768 to 1280x1024 resolution. Now I have to get all the fonts resized in all the apps to something I can read all day long without going blind.

The flat panel display sat on the floor overnight. SuSE 7.1 has been sitting on the floor for almost a week, waiting for some time to install it, and fiddle with it, and rebuild or download the things it breaks, and time to play with the new features, and built a firewall with IPtables, and try out XFree86 4.0, and try the 2.4 kernel, and then put it all back together so I can get some paying work done. Wish I had money, space, time, and air conditioning for a work machine and a play machine to try some cutting edge stuff, and another play machine for games.

To quote the sage Pogo: "We are faced with insurmountable opportunities."
