So, after a fair bit of tweaking, I have the Debian on my laptop setup decently, with Ion as my window manager. Ion just makes more sense on a laptop, where your mouse probably sucks and your resources are probably more limited (and they certainly are on my laptop :) Although to get certain settings, I have to run gnome-settings-daemon from my .xinitrc, which doesn't seem to be mucking too much stuff up yet, but apparently it horribly screwed some stuff up for mag and drheld, so I guess we'll see. They had some weird Xresources problem I think.


I haven't blogged too much about the goings on down here. Mostly because my laptop was semi-functional and I was too lazy to actually nab pictures off my camera. But we've been having a lot of fun. Last weekend we walked around Stanford.

mag and drheld ride the, uh, the thingy

Stanford has a pretty darn nice campus, of course, with a big forest, nice grassy areas, a statue garden and a cactus garden. But that doesn't mean it escapes America's more crass customs...

You know you're in America when...

And did I say cactus garden? Actually I meant penis garden.

The rare species penis catusitis.. er sumthin (no actual penis filmed here.. don't worry :)

This weekend we went with our landlord, a very strange but well-meaning guy, for a drive around the coast and a bit of a hike. It was nice, and it was good to get out of Palo Alto for a bit. And I hadn't seen the Pacific in over a year, so that was fun.

Finally, I leave you with the "inverse mohawk" with which I was temporarily endowed.

It's all the rage these days
