We went out to the art museum to take in a lecture from Pete Docter, the co-writer of Toy Story 1 & 2, and the director and co-writer of Monsters, Inc. It was a really great presentation, and we had a lot of fun. I was particularly pleased that he went to great lengths to call on the little kids during the Q&A; section. Afterword, while I stood around with gieves, ayb2, and Brent, Liz went up to chat with him and get an autograph. See, she has social skills. Neat, huh? Anyway, he autographed her ticket, and even included a cute little Mike Wazowski doodle! We plan on using it as a nice accent when we get around to having one of our Monsters lithographs framed.
Meanwhile, my computer chugged along, and sometime earlier this evening, it finished compiling XFree86! Hurrah! One step closer to usefulness! I also emerged some essentials like rdate, lynx, and apache while I waited. I guess I'll get around to restoring the web content (photos and all) some day real soon.
And now... Because my CPU hasn't done nearly enough this weekend... It's time to kick off an "emerge kde". As I understand it, this should only take a few days.....
