Forgot to make a new entry yesterday, so making up for it this morning :D Currently at uni, enjoying my rather short 1hour WAKE UP hour.

Any who, I managed (after much thought, grunting, swearing) to place my good old 20" MONSTER on my new shiny-made-mostly-of-glass computer desk, so I no longer have to spend my ibook fund on a new monitor. But karma being karma, with in the same hour, my cousine's 17" acer decided it has had enough abuse from dirty fingers and spittle, and gave up the ghost. *sigh* Sundays are never easy :S

In slightly better news, I got GIMP 2.0.0 (!!) and its FANTASTIC! Faster, slicker, and better than ever before! Kudos to the good people over at gimp.org for dedicating their time and effort.

Also uploaded a new deviation, head over to my deviantart page and have a look. On the topic of images, I captured a fairly ironic screen shot, in which 7-11 advertised the lower TCO of MS Server over *nix on slashdot of all places. I wonder how they managed to get that one in considering slashdot's parent company.

Last and not least, my dad left for China, and due to day light saving, got there an hour early, and then the plane itself was delayed 3.5 hours. I sincerely hope my poor father had a good book with him! Got a phone call last night, he has arrived safe and sound.

Hrm, thats more or less it, boring eh :P

Cheers,
Steve

P.S. blogger.com works in lynx :-) Pardon the formatting, lynx needs more work in how it handles textboxes!
