Yeah, but I'll be impressed when they dress like an imam: “Paris Models Flaunt Roman Collars in Spring Runway Show6:18am

Good morning! I started off with a bit of a nerd aside, watching a video overview of a minimalist Linux window manager called i3wm. It's a chilly -1°F outside this morning. The kids are kind of slow gettin' up this morning and I'm a bit groggy from yesterday's classes. 6:33am

I was talking with Michelle about the girls' new semester. It seems as though Claire and Abby have swapped roles in a sense. This is Abby's math and science heavy semester while for Claire it's more liberal arts. Hope they both do as well as last semester. 6:35am

Video: Beautiful tribute to one of the 20th century's greats: Blessed John Paul II 6:44am

Via Pontifex: “Many false idols are held up today. For Christians to be faithful, they can’t be afraid to go against the current.” 6:50am

It's the feast day of one of my favorite writers: St Francis de Sales, patron of Catholic media. He even learned sign language to convert the deaf. 6:53am

Snapshot from 2 years ago Stopped by Cafe on the Oval for a warm breakfast before heading into the office. Got to chat with a friend from church at the counter. Listened to This Week in Tech #389 on the drive down to Boxborough. 9:29am

Sure, it was a cold commute in, but not as bad as a morning I remember two years ago this day. Click to enlarge the snapshot at right. 10:52am

Tried to cram one last test suite in before I left for the day. Left work around 6:30. It wasn't quite as cold with temps in the mid-teens. I listened to Security Now #388 on the commute north. 7:40pm

Trying to build i3wm on my Arch Linux VM to tinker with it. I saw a screencast on it earlier today and it got my interest. 8:12pm

Claire got back from another gymnastics team practice. I helped her cover her car for the night. I've been trying to find the HP-28S and manuals that I bought some months back because Timothy is interested. I have the feeling they've been Michelle'd somewhere. [read: organized away] 10:11pm

“He had cured many and, as a result, those who had diseases
were pressing upon him to touch him.
And whenever unclean spirits saw him they would fall down before him
and shout, ‘You are the Son of God.’ ”
Mark 3
