Behind the Bushes: Chronology of a Family

the government doesn't love you

Oh great, apparently today is the day on LJ to be assaulted by flags wherever you look. Ok fine:

Please pretend I said something witty and insightful here. I'm too disgusted with watching our inexorable march toward dictatorship as the president's puppeteers wipe their asses on the Constitution to be able to come up with anything coherent at the moment.

I am a bad parent

So I've got this program xkeycaps that I wrote in 1991 that lets you remap your keyboard. People still use it. Because X sucks, it has to have special knowledge about the shape and layout of every keyboard on the planet. It knows about 200+ keyboards at the moment. I get sent new keyboard layouts pretty often...

And I've been ignoring them since December 1999, because it's a pain in the ass to sanity-check their changes, and to install them into the program, and basically it's just not very interesting.

So there are 112 un-dealt-with messages in my xkeycaps mail folder right now, and I feel a little twinge of guilt every time a new one comes in (like just now.) Then I consign that message to probable oblivion and forget about it.
