Just a quick update.

I’m still here! I’m so immersed in Stonekeep work that I haven’t had a lot of time for general life chitchat. I’m remembering what it’s like to be totally absorbed in a project, and coding on it, and developing. It’s refreshing in many ways.
Working from home fulltime again is as usual bringing its own challenges. Fortunately I do take Zach either to or from school each day, so that gives me a chance to get out of the building, but 90% of the time I’m home I’m in my bedroom at my desk. Wasn’t this my life in my early 20’s? But then it was hacking Apple stuff or playing Wizardry. Now it’s Java code and Debian system configuration.
I think I’m learning again, so that’s a plus. Debian is a great environment, and I’m having that “Why isn’t EVERYONE using this?!?” sort of feeling. Linux sure has come a long way.
Current fun is figuring how where the world is on shared calendars. Catya and I are wiggling around trying to find a way she and I can share calendars. We’re almost there. Expect a geeky post on this shortly.
In the meantime, I highly recommend Evolution as a mail client. It’s very outlook-like, but don’t hold that against it. Extremely well written and works great.
