Just a quick update, I'm currently making my room stop leaking water.
On Monday Jeff, Kenny and Brad came to Waterloo and we (Jen and I and them) went to Morty's for wings with Chris and Rob, then we went to Rob's house and played Chez Geek 3 while watching Family Guy and Futurama. At Morty's I had a suicide wing for some reason and it just about killed me. Very hot. But tasty nonetheless. :)
I think my Linux system is useable finally. If you like you can see a screenshot of my desktop. I'm running Fluxbox as my window manager and the 2.6test9 kernel.
Back to stopping the water. I don't think I can win. I will post a picture whenever Jen gets her roll of film developed.
