Had a nice few days in Jersey, except for my laptop problems causing me pain and embarassment. I've decided I'm going to aim towards getting a 15" PowerBook (w/ATI gfx) for my birthday in November and struggle by with this one for now. Going to the airport in a couple of hours. Looking forward to getting home, but am feeling a bit rough after drinking all sorts with my brother and a few mates last night, so I'm not looking forward to spending the night in an economy class plane seat to Bangkok (with a connection in Dubai).

Oh, I should point out that I was completely wrong about GnuCash. It does rely on some nasty scripting (via Guile), but it is actually mostly Gtk2/Glade-based and not python-based as I suggested. I don't know where I got that idea from! I've started playing with the Gtk2 branch of GnuCash now, but it doesn't compile cleanly for me just yet.
