Ari and I watched Silence of the Lambs last night. It's our favorite movie, and we wanted to get up to speed in preparation for the release of the sequel next week. Pretty exciting!

I don't know what it is about printing out code to reread it and make notes with a pencil. I find it clears my head, lets me see the code in a new light. Lots of fun. I also printed out Owen Taylor's GTK drawing tutorial, as it shows how to do backing stores to prevent flicker. I'll probably take these pages all to bed tonight to read.

I've been using Nautilus for about 2 days now. Pretty schweet. This app has a lot of potential. Now that I have kernel 2.4 running, my IDE chipset can run in the much faster DMA mode. My machine is noticeably a bit more peppy.
