I just spent an hour pissing around with my icewm preferences. I got rid of the 'start' menu on the taskbar, in an attempt to break that bad habit. Key combos are the way to go. Now a button to pop up an xterm owns that real estate. Screenshot of my new background image and nifty-ized taskbar.
I also cleaned out the crap from the global 'menu' file, since debian's menu program handles everything anyway.
What else? Midterm today, I think I did not too badly. Midterm tomorrow night, which is going to suck.
clab(command line address book) now has a webpage here. there's even *gasp* some documentation.
