Stayed up all night last night getting madwifi working, so I could do 802.11b/g and WPA. And then starting to use Gnome NetworkManager. It seems to work well enough, but I'm nervious about how "black box" it is. Even the manuals and webpages don't describe how it works, it's all just marketing fluff about how good it is and how great it's going to be.

I finally dropped holiday cards in the mail. I wish there was a way to just hand them a handful of envelopes and some money, and be done with it, but a hundred cards once a year are not worth getting a bulk mail permit for. So I had to firetip apply all those stamps, and then drop the stack in the mailing slot, destrying the fact that I had kept them all in ZIP+4 order.
