Girlfriend update

I said goodbye to Ann at Brisbane Airport's International Terminal yesterday; even though I only have to wait about 42 days before flying out to New York and meeting her again, I'm left a little sad and empty.

On the upside, I think I managed to introduce her to just enough of Emacs, Gnus, nethack and screen that she may be interested in learning more. Yea!

Hacking update

Nothing to report.

Work update

I'm seeking a US employer that will sponsor a H1-B visa; dice.com is a decent enough place to start looking, I think, but falls down for folks like me: I get plenty of results explicitly saying `No H1-B or third parties'.

There must be something better.
