The boring rants of a lazy nerd

No Update

Frankly, I have nothing to say. I have family in Haifa, but they are all safe. Some friends who serve in the north but don't have to have been reassigned to the center. Some people's end of semester exams have been postponed. I try not to feel anything about the dead and injured. My neighbor from when I grew up got married. A friend of mine from training is getting married in August. Another friend from training is getting married in September. Life goes on. Thank you for worrying, Emily.

First of all, I have to say that I have been using XMMS for years now, and having discovered Amarok in Mark's essentials list I feel ashamed, because I realize I have been living in the dark ages. XMMS is basically WinAmp 0.9, the kind that was bundled with Netscape 4 IIRC, so it's quite dated by Q3 '06. Anyway, Amarok rocks, and MusicBrainz (integrated music fingerprint identification system) is awesome. And it's all free!

On a completely unrelated note, girls are a wonderful thing, because they don't have this competitive macho thing that's going on whenever young males interact. I find it very relaxing. So much so, that I'm even contemplating increasing my interaction with females up from "never" all the way to "occasionally", which is, admittedly, a very large step.
