I got nice presents all around. Some DVDs I wanted and lots of edibles, including dark chocolate and a big case of my favourite protein bars. Thanks to everyone who sent cards or goodies, you know who you are. They are very much appreciated.
I tend to get depressed when I don't have enough to do, so I started a new project, aside from fanfic related things. I haven't done very much with my server so far, aside from set up a web page which doesn't work. I found the admin panel for the server not handy for installing software. So I'm currently learning my way around linux. It took me half a day to install a java package, but I think I figured out the most basic commands. I think think that fuzzing around with a console is a major pain, but I'm learning. I really need to get this screen thingy installed because one console window just isn't enough. I'm the kind of user who can have 20-odd tabs open in opera.
