I got to play chess against both wasoxygen and weewooweewoo, and can't overstate how much I enjoyed those matches and my opponents.
Switching from Debian to FreeBSD on my older laptop went smoothly. In two weeks since installation, there were no problems to speak of, but I'll wait with any big decisions or judgements for a few months. There's not much point in saying anything one way or another on a fresh system.
My fuckoff-triple-major schedule somehow manages to not look like a stress-test! It also seems like I got on a right foot with some of the students at the chemistry department, which is a nice change of pace for me. It's hard not to enjoy this state of things.
