Remove the murderers from office, before it is too late

This is just a brief note to say that facts continue to turn up that
are consistent with the theory that the Bushist regime purposely let a
major terrorist attack happen.

The Bushists may, actually, have had more to do with it than that, but
I have no evidence to persuade me towards that theory. It doesn't
matter much to me, anyway. Either way, whatever fate the mass
murderer Osama bin Laden deserves, so also do the Bushist mass
murderers.

Unicon and FreeType

I have gotten Unicon working with FreeType and Fontconfig, though at
times I have had to use an ice pack to rest my right hand on, as a
pain killer. In the process I learned that Xft is an interface
between X Windows and FreeType, and that much of the functionality of
Xft was moved into what is now Fontconfig. Xft is poorly documented
but surprisingly easy to use.

This is the first time I have ever worked on X applications.

It was getting very frustrating being unable to take on programming
projects such as this. This one has pushed me right up to the limit,
and not without repercussions.

There is still the matter of making my changes fit in as a part of the
package, and making sure that if you leave out Xft then the "legacy" X
fonts support still works.

I'm a girly mama

Girly Mama 2
You're a girl power mommy! You love to be girly,
but you're no pushover. Your kids are learning
that gender differences don't have to mean
gender inequality. You've taken back pink, and
you don't care who knows it!


What kind of a freaky mother are you?

The quiz actually works; I love those girls! Especially the bubbly one. No, the tomboy. No, the brainy one. Oh, heck, I love them all the same!
