'Spose I should update. Not that much of anything is going on. corvisdog is a good influence on my life; he occupies a good deal of my time and attention. Bought a couple of books lately; was able to buy most of the textbooks, in total, for approximately the list price of one of them. Ordered DSL, which won't come until after Pumpcon -- I can't get ommkarja's computer to use its winmodem. :( Not that I'm actually trying particularly hard. Otherwise, life is pretty calm and boring: come home, take the dog to the park for an hour or so, make dinner, maybe read, maybe play some video games, read papers, wake up, repeat. Suppress the feeling that I'm not living up to my potential.
