Wow today is humid here in the desert. While 50% sounds little to the 110% I remember showing up in South Carolina as a kid.. it feels heavy and dead everywhere you walk. [I am not sure if it was really 110%.. the air was foggy and supersaturated so that if you opened up a refrigerator or freezer it would "rain" where the two airs would meet.]

Laptop running F16 alpha didn't shutdown from overheating.. so we are better with GNOME3 than we were in F15. it still runs very hot though.

  • Start the day with the overnight email queue..
  • Do my morning Astronomical Photo of the Day

  • Search through DHCP logs. Your packets move, but I can't hear what they are saying.
  • I tip my hat to the new desktop revolution..
