Caught up on slashdot and some other RSS feeds. Tried to help my uncle resolve some broken dependencies with FreeMind productivity tool. It looks like neat software, but someone needs to provide serious help to the rpm package maintainer. Suggesting to install with -nodeps in the FAQ instead of fixing the dependency list is just wrong... grrr.

Tried to fix a path/library problem with building pymedia. If I can get it working, it can theoretically provide a way to retrieve the length of an mp3 programatically. I plan on using this to help look for albums that I have duplicate copies of in ogg and mp3 format.

Body: Played with music players. Bugged Jafo about HA routing. Calculated the number of possible games of Go, compared to the number of possible haiku poems. Generally spaced out and then found myself a couple hours in the future.
