I like the linked list helper functions from the Linux kernel so much I used them in my robot dynamics simulator. And in the new xmp too.

Also enjoyed Roxen Challenger's excellent configuration interface to set up my personal debian mirror built with apt-move. No doubt apache has better performance and memory footprint, but sometimes painless administration is more important than performance. And administration interface is where Roxen really shines!

Sent a couple of patches to the XRally maintainer, adding sound, a new radar mode and a new tileset. XRally is a cool clone of Namco's classic Rally-X. Hmm. A PalmOS port would be cool!

Interesting stuff being prepared for the upcoming release of Conectiva Linux.

Bought a Zip drive and a Matrox card. Oh boy, I'll finally get rid of this horrid 89 Hz interlaced video mode and 80 MHz dot clock limit in 16 bpp of the ATI Mach64 card I'm using.

I hate Loki. They released a 200 turn demo version of SMAC. Now I'm trying to actually win a match within the 200 turn limit.

Still no DSL. This sucks.
