*mutter* daylight time *mutter*
Actually, this year I just compensated for the time change by reading 'til 3 in the morning. My sleep patterns are messed up enough that I haven't noticed it all that much. This is probably not a healthy thing.
Brennen's First Rule of Software: As long as it sorta works most of the time, you're probably too lazy to upgrade, debug, configure, edit or replace it.
To put it another way, why do you think most of the world still uses Windows? Why is Word the world's most popular word processor? And why am I staring at 8 bit color in X, while thinking that I really ought to get sound working under Linux one of these days?
Speaking of word processors, LyX looks pretty cool. The interface could use some work, maybe, but I like the idea of "document processing" software that actually uses the computer's strengths to produce well laid out documents. Separating content from form, and all that. Unlike, as they point out, trying to turn your computer into a glorified typewriter. Which I think is a pretty good description of what's basically wrong with a piece of software like Word.
And now for some reason, Hardlink's not letting me log in. Guess I'll upload this later.
