Great Huge Thanks go out to Cat5, Andy and most of all Jen for their various contributions, and most of all making sure that my first ever time in a police car was a pleasent one :)
Trippy trippy dream last night. Guess I've been thinking about the Spider-man movie a lot lately.
I was spider-man. While travelling in a raft, I cleaned my ears out with a q-tip, and an evil bad guy cloned me from my ear wax. So now there were 4 spider-men running around, and we fought crime togeather. On one occasion, we were all lured to an old warehouse together and trapped. The bad guys came in and tried to get us. While they were doing something we all started hitting them with big foam slabs (like you find in the gym for doing stretching on). Eventually they just got used to being hit in the back of the head with this and forgot about us, and we just ran away.
Less than a week until it starts!
What else has been going on. Well, I set up a second box for myself. I had to grab a video card (nvidia geforce2-mx (32mb)) and mouse (ms optical (but the new box gets my old mouse)), but other than that I cobbled it togeather from other bits I have sitting around. It's got a hard drive installed with Linux (the very cool Gentoo distribution) and another with Windows XP. It's only a P2-300 (256mb ram) but should be adequate. I'm going to use this as the windows development box as I have mostly accepted some contract work doing some windows and linux library development. Now I just need a bigger desk to fit all this stuff on :) Hmm.... <looks at the new ikea just down the road....>
