Installed and running successfully: Red Hat 9.0 and all patches, qmail 1.03 and all patches. Now I need to sleep!
There's a new Pet Shop Boys album out! I'm gonna get PopArt, sight and sound unseen. I downloaded "Positive Role Model" (legally, off their site) a few months ago and I liked it. Last album I bought without listening first was Depeche Mode's Exciter.

The newest section, Articles, is very small, but I've already managed to cover everything from Racism to Customer Service to dismissing Einstein and Stephen Hawking's ideas on quantum theory. It's been interesting, to say the least, and I haven't even broken a sweat!
Yesterday was my first day at work since I was booked off for my operation, but I did come in last week Monday against my doctor's orders.
