I got a replacement iBook CDROM through eBay. Finally, for the first time in quite a long time, I have a laptop that's fully functional again. No more debian. I installed the latest version of pernangband, and may start working on it again. I installed MoLD, my game, and will definitely start working on it again. I copied a lot of my music onto it.
I'm also looking forward to my new job on Monday. I'm looking forward to going downstairs in a few minutes and getting something to eat. Anyhow, in general, I suppose I'm quite pleased with the state of things.
Off I go.
