Someone from the recruitment agency we use at work just popped in to say hello - and drop off two big boxes of Krispy Kremes as a Christmas gift.

I'm waiting for files to finish copying from Ukyo and Lina over to Yuri, and for Yuri to download all the latest updates to Fedora, so right now I can't proceed with building Kei. I could do some useful work - there are some people waiting patiently for Mu.Nu blogs - but I thought I'd watch some anime first.
I decided on Mahoromatic, since the first DVD was kind of fun. So I went to pop it in the DVD player, and there was already a disk in there.
The disk was Big Trouble in Little China. Which means that I haven't watched any DVDs for six months.
A little catching up to do over Christmas, I think...
Update: First DVD in six months and I pick one I've already seen. Go me.

You know how in scientific experiments, and debugging computer programs, and generally when trying to work out what's wrong, you try to arrange things so that you only change one factor at a time, so that you can determine exactly what it was that caused the problem or effect that is under study?
Well, if you both (a) had your phone line disconnected because you forgot to pay your bill and (b) kicked the cord out of the line splitter so that your modem was no longer connected to anything, this doesn't work too well.
Which leaves me in the very curious position of having to apologise for something I said about Telstra.
Yes, the young lady on the phone was correct. My ADSL came back up. The continuing problems were entirely my fault.
[There, that wasn't so painful. — Ed.]
I need a better line splitter that doesn't fall apart whenever I look at it. Or failing that, some electrical tape.

Looks like somepixy forgot to pay the phone bill.
Looks like when Telstra say Yes, your ADSL will be reconnected along with your phone service they really mean I have no idea but if I say yes you'll get off the line and it will be Someone Else's Problem.

My new nephew, Harold Huxley Misa, said hello to the world at around 5 AM today.
Mother and son are doing fine. Father is apparently exhausted.
