Hot Damn!

Got my kernels kickin'
Got my Zooms zoomin'
Got my masqs rading'
Got my hops in hand
Sittin' by the pool,
Posting on Guacamole
With a laptop lapping.

Of course, the mosquitoes are out and it's past midnight. This was just a range test. Zoom wireless cards rock.

Time to sync up on the CVS tree and start cranking out my next module releases. I've been neglecting them lately, mostly due to external distractions but partly due to getting the laptop kicking. I'm ready to start cranking, now, though.

I suppose I can be one of those people in the coffee houses now, face aglow from the laptop betwixt sips of joe. We'll see. Mostly I'm just glad for any change of scenery from my cluttered bedroom, where I tend to hack from a frankenstein desktop constructed from the hastily disassembled components of my mp3 box. The micro ATX form factor looks like a postage stamp in the case. Anyway, it's nice to be able to wander about with the laptop.

Off to the Redneck Riviera next week for vacation. Laguna Beach, Florida, which is between Destin and Panama City Beach. Beautiful beaches, awesome seafood (oysters...mmmm...).

Can't decide whether to take projects along with me. I should probably go analog for a while.

The car (87 Volvo 240 GL, what a trooper) is in the shop for a tune-up, so I'll be biking around town tomorrow. Unfortunately I don't think my satchel is big enough for the laptop in addition to a change of clothes, shower paraphernalia, etc. To stink or to hack, that is the question. I suppose I will have mercy on my coworkers.
