And on the third day...


You can tell that Summer is preparing to leave, and with my new team cut down to two (myself plus another, who should be returning from vacation tomorrow), I anticipate a busy week ahead.

In the meantime, I’ve been trying to enjoy the quiet imparted by a three-day weekend and having mild success at it, even though I was unable to do much in terms of reading, writing or tinkering with technology – which I did do, but not in the manner or intensity I usually favor: I got my hands on one of these, and have spent a couple of hours, all told, tinkering around (and have already had to resort to the OS restore DVD once1).

More on that later, but rest assured that my notes on the tweaking I’m doing will be a matter of public record. I’m trying to make the minimal amount of changes possible, since it is already pretty damn useful to me as shipped, but that doesn’t mean I won’t throw in some original twists…

1 No matter what you do, don’t mess around with the built-in GTK or update any packages without checking the dependencies first, or you’ll break the custom desktop environment beyond repair.
