The last week has been quite exciting. I got 2 new Lonicera vines, one with red the other yellow flowers. Then 2 interesting everglade Viburnum bushes, I have never seen before. All seem to feel well. Then, at last, I bought 4 small Apistogramma ramirezi I have always wanted. They are cute and seem happy, although having to hide themselves from big anglefish.

Gnome-font has done good progress. I wrote very simple device-independent glyphlist implementation, and it worked from the start, and worked well, what is quite unusual. Now I have to think out a nice way to pack it into pretty, understandable format so it can be thrown into gnome-print too.

I had a long talk with my father about buddhism, eco-dictatorship and similar topics. Western society is heading to doom - that is inevitable - but the question is: Should we do anything either to help it to collapse with smaller bloodshed or, if that cannot be achieved, at least to help ourselves or our children.
