decklin: Thanks for the fonts advice you have sent me via e-mail. Talking about fonts, X has been getting better and better. I am strong aesthetic and will not tolerate a Helvetica-12-Bold font or bold version of fixed and before gtk-themes were there I always modified the source to every gtk application to parse my .gtkrc, while everyone else was complaining about gtk's uglyness.

Again, I seem to have submitted to sawfish. Now I've found a theme to suit me, zen theme on themes.org, since all it has a border around the window, no title bar etc.. Very nice and space-saving. Worked a bit more with my emacs configuration. Tried xemacs shortly, but gave it up for gnu-emacs. Loop is finally here for the DSL connection, so I can expect DSL pretty soon. Made some provisions for payment of a second IP address, which I will dedicated to my Sparc.

Really thinking of learning more Python. Python looks neat and high level. BUILD Linux pre-view release is out, grab it. It even includes a script I've contributed in Perl (Hey at least I didnt something usefull). Watched The Matrix on VHS.
