No Fun At All

So, in order to get Logjam (and other stuff) to work with Japanese input, I upgraded to the unstable Woody release of Debian. Turned out to be the expected pain -- it screwed up my fonts slightly, and exim overwrote my Sendmail binaries (ばか exim -- of course it has to f*ck up sendmail at every opportunity). Anyway, everything seems to be recovered, and now I've got better Asian language support and all that. So, I guess it really wasn't that bad. Of course, this version of Logjam is super, super sweet, so I think it was all worth it after all... Woo.

And the current fonts are much prettier, not that I really give a damn.

I also added some links on my journal pages, so everything is all super-spiff.

And I forgot to do laundry, so here I am, up until oh-dark-thirty so I can move up the last load so that I'll actually have something clean to wear tomorrow. Feh.

Back To The Election

I'm updating my outrageous election prediction for the presidential election this year, this time with a visual aid:

Kerry 353, Bush 185

Actually, just to make things more complicated, I predict Kerry will win 353 to 184, due to the probable non-vote on the part of a republican elector in West Virginia (especially if it becomes clear that the single vote won't matter).

(This update is primarily because I can't remember which states I predicted would go to who, so I started over.)

For those who are interested, I recommend the following web sites for following the latest polling data:
