In the past week, I've been able to do a bit of work on closing PRs assigned to me. I've decided to give away a few ports to other committers, because due to unknown issues I have very little energy most days ;-(

The brighter parts of the week have included obtaining a new mpg123 (0.59s in the CVS) which has a good 10-20% improvement in decoding speed for the 3DNow! core, getting friends at school (re)introduced to boggle, getting a cordless keyboard, and getting to be close again to an ex-girlfriend (which can be a very, very hard thing).

As far as FreeBSD goes, even with my little energy, I'd like to continue to do as much as I can find the motiviation to. Right now, I haven't figured out what I'm going to work on next. I've got a pet app, read_cd, which might do well to complement burncd(8) sometime soon, but I really haven't come up with many new interesting ideas. I'd love to have an idea for something new and interesting to come to me, but so far I've been drawing a blank.

It would help if there wasn't so much software already written, and there was really something I wanted so much that I'd have the inspiration to start it. Argh, too much good software already written =) I suppose right now I'm kinda relegated to supporting my existing areas (OpenSSH mainly, and some other ports which can be fussy), getting bugs fixed (Hmm... Snes9X on the Alpha wasn't working last time I checked...), and rejuvenating/cleaning up eclectic things.

I hope I get more energy instead of this fatigue soon; there's so much more I'd love to learn and do.
