Today, Monday

I did a 8pm-4am shift lastnight / thismorning. Not because I had to, but because I had some ideas. So, because of that, I slept `till 11am, then just went directly to the gym.

Today was legs. Pretty typical sheet, with only one change. Instead of doing "reps" of the standing calves, for 2 sets I instead just lifted the weight and held it for 30 seconds. Isometric, I think it's called. Basically I had my own bodyweight again pressing down on my shoulders, while standing up on my toes. Really started to quiver, but again, I. Would. Not. Quit.

I've synced my music collection back to my Archos (it was drifting behind the tree I had stashed on my work computer). It looks like I'm going to have to buy a new kit of batteries for it, it can only hold a charge for about half an hour. This is not a surprise, checking my money register, I bought it pretty much exactly a year ago, in mid-February of 2003.

The body of the computer that will be amsu is sitting on my desk. The ISOs for Fedora are pouring in via BitTorrent even as I type. Update: the first disc is now installing

My new laptop bag (an "eBags Professional Laptop Backpack (Black)") also arrived today. It looks new, but it had an (unused) tampon, a bag of tissues, and a burned CD hidden in it's pockets. I think I shall drop a note to that maybe they should improve their returns handling process.
