what will I do after Intel?

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:

Definitely:
- visit family and friends
- relax
- 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

Maybe:
- 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.
