Oh goddamn it, how did I miss this? Joe Strummer has died (Reuters
story)
. How fucking depressing. We have lost far too many
musicians that I love this year, and my hero Warren is not long for
this life. Not to mention the horrible feeling it gives me to have the
angry young men of my youth dying of heart attacks and cancer. Joe
Strummer was 15 years older than I am and he dropped dead. Urk.

There weren’t as many takers as I was expecting for the Zevon
concert. Later today I’ll be posting it to Usenet so mail me soon if
you want it, as I expect that I’ll have given away all the copies
within an hour or two of the original post.

I e-mailed about the new/old Mac today. We’ll see if the guy still has
it. $300 for a 300 MHz Blue and White G3, with an OS 9 and OS 10.1.5
on it. The cool thing is that it has Firewire. Last XMas my wife got
me a CD burner that has both USB and Firewire interfaces. It’s 24X,
but the USB only does 8X. I’m getting a little excited at the thought
of being able to run OS X. I had resigned myself to an indefinite
future of OS 8.6, which means that things like my newsreader of choice
MT-Newswatcher were no longer being developed on that platform. All
the action is happening on OS X. As late as yesterday, the guy was
posting about it on Usenet, so I hope it is still available.

I almost missed an entry at all today. I got WREK’s Bugzilla install
working and we took our dog to get a photo made with Santa. Big day
around these parts.
