Gloves and Gnomes

Posted on Wed 25 January 2006 in geek

I failed to buy some gloves from M&S today. The only ones they had left where nice leather gloves. However at ?35 a throw I'm not sure if I'm capable of buying accessories for a mere cold snap for the price of a pair of decent trousers. I can always stick my hands in my pockets.

The latest Gnome has just been unmasked for amd64 on Gentoo so I'm currently taxing the CPU to update it. Despite my failure at tying to test the modular X.org release last week this is going a lot better. Maybe I'm just not cut out for the very bleeding edge anymore? Having said that once I've updated I do want to get Beagle running. I want to see how it stacks up against OS X's Spotlight which some of the Mac fans at work keep singing the praises of.
