Midday and parcelforce still haven't delivered wireless ethernet card that was ordered last week.

Meanwhile much cursing is being directed at RedHat 7.1 and Windows 98 as Papaya crashes repeatedly on both of those systems. Of course I'm using RedHat 7.2 and Windows XP and it's rock solid on those. Current unverified theory is that the std C library lists are somehow being used improperly. May install RedHat 7.1/Windows 98 on spare computer at some point today to see if it's possible to duplicate the bug reports.

New microwave is installed in kitchen. However, lack of microwavable food in freezer means testing it must wait. Unlikely to go shopping for microwavable food as arms hurt a lot from carrying microwave to bus station, and am waiting for delivery of above mentioned wireless network card.

It'll be nice not to fall over ethernet cable currently running through the kitchen and up the stairs.

Even more cursing. Disc 1 of RedHat 7.1 has suffered catastrophic physical damage. 4 hour download starts. Maybe will start with Windows 98 and hope VC++ doesn't frazzle it.
