My wonderful Meg kitty.

(no subject)

Well -- let's see. T-6 days until my phone service is back up.

In the meantime, I have a spare boogeyman that I'm going to drop off with spcecdt who will host it for me. Not everything'll be on there, but all the stuff people need will be there. Elsewise, I can sneakernet it.

Things are things. philled2thebrim has been making a habit of coming over on Wednesdays for Battlestar Galactica. I somehow skillfully avoided it until the end of the show 8)

I had a fairly extreme GUI makeover a couple of days ago. My desktop now cycles between pictures of Jane Russell, Bette Davis, Ava Gardner, Diana Rigg, Norma Shearer, and other actresses. 95% of them are black and white -- they just look better somehow. The few color ones are of Geena Davis. I set up full transparency in X and then I realized that really wasn't what I wanted. I wanted the fake transparency that terminals provide.

This way, I get the background (instead of whatever happens to be behind the term) piped through and the font is still opaque.

I'm going to do something fun tonight after dropping off b. I wonder what I'll do.

Oh -- one last thing. The Scrapyard of Insufferable Arrogance just went to preorder. Whee!
