-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
Woke up around 1500. Harry and I had planned on going down and doing some work at Factory, which we've been planning on doing for three weeks now (first week I overslept, second week the door was busted so we couldn't get in, today I overslept again), but that was more or less out. However, we also wanted to get Phoebe's for dinner, so uh, we did that. Pretty good turn-out, and we ate at Factory. Got to see Bryce and Steph who I never see these days.
Also, Phoebe's? Best goddamn BBQ. I didn't like BBQ until I had Phoebe's. A couple years ago, when Adam had his third-floor apartment on 23rd St (with the restaurant being oh, two blocks away) we would get some take-out and kick it on his fire escape. It was quite awesome.
After dinner, we sat around talking about shit to do to Factory and maybe getting involved in community efforts again. Then everyone but Evan and I left and I started puttng together a junk box for him. Managed to cut the front of my index finger on something in the case (yay for typing) and generally managed to get angry at stupid old hardware.
Instaling Ubuntu on a P266 is not fast. :)
The last few weeks have just been work, coding... I re-read the whole Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and it was Good.
Last week was the first meeting for the RPG rjbs is running, and while we just did character generation, it was still a good time.
The software I'm writing right now (which is about to hit its first milestone) is just trac/svn provisioning stuff, but it's sort of cool in that it uses SSH keys for system authentication and does a few other slightly neat things (like uses the trac WebAdmin plugin for user management). Nothing major, written in Catalyst so it's super easy. I'm running the latest Cat 5.5 RC (5.49 RC4) and it's very nice.
Bought tickets for Thanksgiving in ATL. Should be somewhat entertaining watching kitten cook a turkey considering he doesn't know how and broke his fool wrist. I will take pictures.
Ah, so now Andy can expect even more odd looks at the airport.Posted by: Steve at November 14, 2005 9:25 AM
