I did turn into an actual monk. Check my picture out if you're so inclined.
I'm hoping I can figure out how to get the Linux From Scratch documents un-b-zipped before my friend gets here for MST3K time. I suspect I'll be able to -- Cygwin's thingybajoogle for updating your stuff is nice, and I dumped the bzip algorithm right in. Took maybe five minutes total.
Now I just have to get it uncompressed, print a large chunk of it, and digest it sometime tomorrow. Should be almost impossible; I have to make a christmas party with my 'rents at 1:00, so I've got to get up around 11:00 or so.
It'll be nice to sit back, watch MST, and laugh for a while...instead of feeling vaguely guilty about not working.
Decompression awaits. Let's hope I can avoid the bends.
