It’s not surprising, I’m doing pretty much nothing at work. It should be nice but even when it’s just showing up, it still feels like work, and not vacation. Even worse, I said I’d show up next Monday. Ecch, after the goodbye lunch, that should be it I think.
Meanwhile, my list of things to do after I’m done at Intel grows:
- visit family and friends
- ride bike a lot
- play some musical instruments and/or compose something
- work on websites/business ideas (not right away)
- be a Big Brother (if accepted)
- get house in shape
- get me in shape
- other travel
- start a rackspace cooperative like bandwagon.to in PDX?
- read a lot
- attend local happenings
- take class at community college on something interesting
- attend oof’s event to see Snakes on a Plane
- reverse-engineer and write Linux driver for my M-Audio audio interface
Anyone have any other ideas on things I should do?
Jen and I went to Borders yesterday to escape the 100+ temperatures, and I ended up buying Ubuntu Hacks, an excellent resource on cool things Ubuntu (and Linux in general) can do. I *did* know some of these already, but many of them were new, including 1) mounting a share with sshfs, 2) sbackup (a great backup tool I would use if I wasn’t already using backupninja), 3) Drivel (the blogging tool I’m using right now!) and 4) Unison, a tool to keep dirs in sync across multiple machines, and 5) lots of ways to tweak GNOME.
