The first day of the trimester at work, and I've got an 0800 lecture...
for the one (inherited) subject I dislike teaching the most. Bah. And
the projector in the room is squirrely. Aaaaaargh! And the room is
And my brain is fogged up enough so that I'm quite sure I'm making more

Yesterday Eric Rohmer died. A pity, I liked his films a lot (especially the
contes des quatre saisons and the comedies et proverbes sets).
However, György Palfi is Not Dead - and I heartily endorse
his film Hukkle to anybody
who likes subtle films. It's really, really nice.
His second film, Taxidermia, is pretty cool as well
but quite a bit further into the odd realms of the universe.

If you are using spamassassin without sa-update you
will not like to hear that as of 5 days ago spamassassin has
pretty much declared open season on all your mails:
to an incredibly gross and dirty bit of rule all properly dated
mails get an extra 3.6 added to their score. kablam!
and change the regexp for FH_DATE_PAST_20XX to something that doesn't fire
in the near future (like 20[2-9][0-9]). Don't forget
sa-compile if you use compiled spamassassin rules.
