Life: I had a really rough January, but I'm not going to get into the details. The kitchen sink drain is working again, the pipes are unfrozen, and our cell phones work [1].

School: My compilers class is going really well. My research project needs a lot more attention.

PyBlosxom: I've been doing some PyBlosxom work again as Ryan gets ready to do a contributed plugins pack release that has all the changes to the comments plugin and all its friends. He's done some really great work pulling things together.

I started hanging out on freenode on #pyblosxom after Asheesh mentioned it on the pyblosxom-users mailing list. That's been pretty cool, but the channel has been pretty quiet most of the time.

Wedding planning is ... coming along. I figure a wedding has 10,000 decisions to make of which maybe 5% of them are "big decisions" (venue, church?, food, ...) and the rest don't really affect the big picture, but they need to be made and it's way harder to make them and there are thousands (silverwear, colors, flowers, flower arrangements, music, favors, text for the invitations, the border on the invitations, the pictures on the stamps for the invitation envelopes, color of the envelopes...). It's been interesting. S has taken on most of the planning lately since I've been sick and working on school work.

Things are moving along pretty quickly. In a few months I'll be graduated, married, and (hopefully) employed!

[1] - S and I get our cell phone service from Working Assets and they have the best customer support of any cell phone company I've been with. You call, you talk to someone immediately, they ask you questions trying to isolate the nuances of your problem, and then they work with you to fix the problem. No hold music, no tedious chit-chat, no scripts, no wasted time, ... And they call you back later to make sure the problem is resolved and that you're satisfied. It's just awesome.
