I spent the day in Baltimore sightseeing with my family. Fun, whee. Except that because of my ear problems, my head got all fucked when going up the elevator to the world trade centre there.

Also, I bought one of those lightning-in-a-glass-ball things which I hooked up to my X10 system for my new email notification device. I've got to stop listening to this song.

Sounds like a very neat idea. So, does it respond whenever you have new mail? Sorry, I'm not quite sure how yours works.

I like the flat dish lightning thingy. If only I weren't so poor...

Re: -->

When ever there's anything in /var/spool/mail/kvance, my script calls bottlerocket (a command line X10 utility) to turn on the lightning dealie. When there's nothing in it again (I've read the mail), bottlerocket turns it off. I got one of those free X10 kits last year when they were all ramped up about linux support, it has served me well.
