Hacked on C code (called from LabVIEW) for decoding X-ray spectra as measured and encoded by a Princeton Gamma-Tech SYS4004 photon detector. This has to be the most esoteric device employed (remotely!) for the evening. Enjoyed the conversations and coffee.
Tried to get a new dell laptop working with SuSE. Uses some i890 chipset for video that was having issues. Played with palm apps.
Upgraded my mp3 laptop by moving the HD over to my main laptop and doing the upgrade and moving it back. Ran into problems with it installing the i686 version of a few things. Will fix it later.
Surfed the net, met a woman taller than myself, and enjoyed the conversations.
