Well today I got to write some good GUI code. There are a plethora of free and nifty Java Swing Look and Feel packages out there, and I’m experimenting with one that our designers could theme. Our principle designer didn’t like the default “metal” (and I can’t say as I blame him), so maybe we can find, or theme, one of our own that he’ll like.
Upgraded kernels on some boxes, one of which bombed, so I had to drive to Durham to find out that someone (not me!) added a new partition to /etc/fstab and then forgot to format it. Considering this is the same person who learned on Monday that when it says “using old partition table until next boot” you do *NOT* mke2fs. Ah well, hours is hours, right?
Came home, grilled chicken, played with the kids, and now am about to go upstairs and maybe watch chobits 7 & 8 on VCD. Or maybe I’ll see what Renee wants to do after Jacob falls asleep….
