My fucking Metro is borken again. It seems to be a problem with the (brand new) alternator. I hope it's just a simple adjustment.

Last night and a little bit this morning I worked on Ripper. Ripper is the name of the computer in my studio (named after General Ripper in Dr. Strangelove). I'm trying to get X working. For some strange reason the packages I installed didn't include an XF86Config-4 file so I had to make one by hand. I also compiled a new kernel patched for low latency. Once I get X working I'm going to work on getting the sound card operational. I must be crazy trying to use Open Source software in my music studio ;) Fuck Cubase, Sonar, Fruity Loops, Reason, and whatever else you young whipper-snappers are using these days. I'm going to be using text-based sequencers and other such ugly things. I'm going to be using experimental and undocumented things like USB-midi.

I ate at Thai Family Restaurant in Bothell today. I love that place. The food is always really good and really cheap. Today there was a bowl of rose petals on the counter. As I was waiting for my food I listened to the workers talking. I love the sing-song sound of whatever language they speak.
