One is not entirely clear as to where the month went. One also suspects that one has forgotten to move one's car to avoid street sweeping and will now owe the city $26.

The computer got a lot quieter after I removed one of the fans, which seems to have a vibration problem. I upgraded to a 2.4 kernel; despite earlier concerns, it seems to work quite well for my purposes, and is noticeably faster in some situations. (It's not obvious which of those are due to better hardware though.) Bonus, the combination of the new machine's video card and the new kernel enables accelerated 3D graphics, which means that if I ever feel like playing elaborate 3D games it'll be possible.

Desperately need to buy groceries.
