Sorry I can't come back to advogato on a better note, but I'm having a very bad day.

First off, lightning struck near my house, killing my modem. Then, in the process of replacing said modem with an internal one (damn walmart), I managed (only God knows how) to damage my firewall's keyboard connector. Now the system won't boot.

Right now I'm connected to the net with my Powerbook and OS X. Turns out the internal modem I got was a Conexant POS, which means I either have to return it and get a better one, or pony up an additional $15 for a driver for it. I bear no ill will toward Linuxant, but it's very fucking cheesy that Conexant or any of the many manufacturers that use Conexant chips wouldn't provide a driver themselves.

Update: Traded in the Conexant for a US Robotics modem, taking things from bad to worse; there are no Linux drivers whatsoever for this piece of shit.

An entire term has passed since my last entry here. So far I have three As (two confirmed and one very probable), one C (which may be a B, depending on whether the professor rounds a 79.3 up), and one unknown grade.

For the summer, I'm registered for an Ethics class which is required for graduation.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
