Wonderfalls Flamingos

Capstones make you sweat blood -

What there is to be shrunken, is first stretched out
What there is to be weakened, is first made strong
What there will be withdrawn, is first bestowed
What there will be thrown over, is first raised up
. . .
Try to wash off blood with blood -
Think no evil

Do without doing
Know without knowing
Get without getting
Go without going . . .
--- Blood,
KMFDM

Capstones are doing this to me. It's really my fault, I guess. I'm trying to be Zen about my eventual annihilation at my own keyboard, by my own hands, sentence by sentence. If I had only made the decision to choose a different advisor, then maybe it would have all been different.

As I sweat blood (see previous entry), I've been watching the progress of Gentoo Linux (PPC) on my Titanium Powerbook. For those of you who didn't know, yes, I succumbed to purchase the only laptop on Earth that could possibly appease the car mentality in everybody (and by everybody I mean me, and by me, I mean not Ian. BTW - I found your distribution, Ian!)

Yes, yes, car mentality - 1. Ooh Shiny, 2. Vector Processor, and 3. Self-optimizing Linux Distribution. I'm sorry - I'm only a man!

The gentoo penguin is renowned among ornithologists for being the fastest of all penguins.

Speaking of men, and women, yeah, that's funny, idn't it? Yup. Sure is. < whistles in the dark >
