yeah that might be the most boring sentence ever written on lj although I suspect there are some bigger geeks than me who do things like swap favorite shell scripts which I have not yet learned to write aren't you glad.
but so now I am sitting here watching words go by on two terminal windows because I am also installing some x windows games through fink because the book I've been reading told me to. I'm not that much of a computer gamer--it seems I always have other things I'd rather be doing--but I thought I'd do this just to see how fink does what it does and so far I can say that it does things very slowly. I mean when you are used to clicking "install" and watching a progress bar for at most five minutes it seems slow to still be sitting here twenty minutes later.
oh look one of them stopped. ok I have to go get my hands dirty.
