Body: Experimented with distributed Fyre rendering with Kevin, Chris, Jeremy & others. Image rendering works fine and gets a nice performance boost from clustering, but animations don't seem to distribute at all for some reason. Discussed MUD server design versus IRC server design and alternative window managers.

Body: Drinking green-tea chai to ward off the creeping crud. Learned what AVI files are. That's something. Passed off the latest ;login:, with an article about hacking in high school, to a high-schooler, as encouragement. Loaned my copy of "Make" to Jeremy.
