I was able to stay home and continue downloading the Fedora core 3. Now that is almost done.
I am reading a computer/numerical analysis classic Numerical Recipes, by Press et al.. This is to study for my numerical analysis course exam coming up mid December.

That's it for computer spending although last week I got myself a USB memory key at 512MB for 60$.
I am still planning on studying SAS for a certification exam in early January late December and my plans to study datamining with SAS continue.

I may spend sometime reinstalling Debian 3.0 r 2 on the 486 laptop this morning. I also will be doing some work on the WinXP laptop, maybe chatting at yahoo with gaim and maybe trying out Internet telephony. I will also, of course, be using Open Office for school work.
Also this morning I will be marking statistics assignments and if I get those graded I will read some stuff on SAS to prepare for the basic programmer certification exam in early Janaury. I settled down my course choices for winter and am fairly certain I will study date warehouseing using SAS and may also study statistical computing in the winter term using either SAS or R.

I will also pause today to reflect on my own committments to peace and justice and the fact that wars have brought us technology. I will think of Alan Turing and the development of computers and also think of arms sales. I will reflect as well on the horror of war and think back on my peace movement activities of the past thirty or more years.

If you write computer code you may need to learn CVS. Here is a very useful info page about this.
You can ignore this if you want or save the link for some other day when you want to learn about writing code on open source projects. The learning curve for CVS is steep but the link can be read fairly easily to see what CVS does for the modern developer.
stay in touch if you want I haven't heard from some of you in a long time hope you're ok.
