About once a month -- I suppose I post a diary entry as often as I look in here. Maybe I should add this diary page to my daily set of links.

I've started at IBM... quite nice, really. I had 2 days of orientation, 1 day of setting up (not finished yet), and now I have class all week. And the class was designed for support people, so it's an absolute breeze for us. I just hate having to get up for 9am.

Here's hoping that the squeeze in the industry doesn't put me out of a job anytime soon.

Gabber 0.8.4 is quite nice (especially with the PGP fixes in place). I especially like the little status thingy that appears in the window. (I use windowmaker, so I don't get a docklet. I just make the status thing a floater. Gotta love gtk.)

Had a hard drive crash just over a week ago. Data recovery told me it was unrecoverable. That sucks. I shipped it to IBM, and UPS says it's delivered, but their web site says it's not received. I hate this stuff. Last time I sent a drive back for warranty replacement, I never heard from the company again.
