Throughout my life I've occasionally run across the problem that I need a tennis court but don't know where they are. I used to drive around looking for parks with courts. I've called parks departments with varied results. Last night I came up with a good idea. I used mapquest, which provides satellite views of most of the earth. I wasn't sure if it would provide enough detail; I was pleasantly surprised. See if you can spot the tennis courts in the following pictures:

Jesus Fucking Christ! Welcome to the wonderful world of linux audio. I can't get one single application working. I've tried rosegarden, jazz++, and muse. I've had the most luck with rosegarden. All I had to do was install a debian package. It starts up at least. I tried compiling jazz++ but it requires some ancient windowing toolkits and ALSA 0.5.x!!!. And, for some reason, Debian doesn't have a muse package for the testing branch. There's a package for stable. There's a package for unstable. There's not a package for testing.

It looks like I need to make a decision. Learn C or surrender to Microsoft.
