Did you hear? Daniel actually posted for a change! (And it only took a few months of pestering!)

Things are good. Alex and I had some troubles recently, but things are back to being awesome again. :) She’s gotten me many birthday gifts and actually kept a few of them secret. Last week she gave me the Herzog/Kinski boxed set, so I’ve been tormenting her with wonderful German cinema. :) She’s going to be taking a cake decorating class soon.

Things at work are also awesome. We’ve just released another product and have a couple more in development as I write this.

You may have heard that, after a great deal of thought, I’ve decided to convert to Judaism. I’ve been thinking about it for about 5 years, though my curiosity goes back even farther. The classes start the first week of September.

Faust gave me his old PC laptop when he got his new one. I put Gentoo on it and have been having fun playing with Linux again after my hiatus. KDE and apps. I even got Io installed and started to mess with it again.

I’ve been wanting to upgrade my blog software for some time. I installed Typo, but having four instances on the work server brought the machine’s load average to ~80, so I decided maybe not. I installed Drupal and really like it, but was going to wait until I had time to theme it and migrate everything. And of course, I haven’t had time to do that. I think it’ll be worth it, but it’s going to have to wait until I really get fed up. I’m sort of wondering whether it’s worth it to bother running my own crap. I’m also sort of wondering if I should just get Rails hosting somewhere, or some other form of hosting, but that almost always sucks a lot. I haven’t been posting, because I’ve been running over these problems in my head instead. How stupid.

I’ve been listening to a lot of Ayreon, Andrew W.K., Modest Mouse and John Brown’s Body. Nathan gave me Twisted Sister’s greatest hits, and I’ve been getting a lot of mileage out of it. Cathy and Eric kindly gave me a copy of Misantropical Painforest and a Hail album, which I have listened to a bit on the road. It’s good stuff, definitely better with friends in front of a big stereo. I need more reggae. More music in general would be good too. When Eric was in town, I hung out with him and Cathy quite a bit, which was very nice.

I ate with Allan, Bill, Heather, Jarrod, Mattax and Tim at Fuddrucker’s last Friday. We mostly talked about Jarrod’s calamity and the student association. It was good to be with the Clan again. My how things change.
