Got back Saturday. Should've updated this long ago.
Since I haven't had much sleep lately, I think I'll put off talking about all the stuff I've got to talk about until tomorrow, rather than starting now and doing a lousy job of it.
I do want to mention a very cool /. piece by Tom Christiansen, Interface Zen - talks about achieving that state of one-ness with your computer where the machine itself just sort of disappears, and how keyboards and mice and bad program design can interfere with this, among other things.
