Titular temptation, then, is that since it's feeling better, I want to not call the doctor and try to just let it run its course.
I'm doing this from class, so I don't have much time (short break while files are located and distributed) but I have Perl with me on Zip disk and I plan to play around with it a little bit.
Quick Addendum: Men plan, God laughs. I didn't get any perl-playing in, but I did get a large chunk of my first assignment in 135 done. Good thing, too, because it's in Excel and I don't have the Office suite installed on my home-beast.
Oh, and I've been surfing around Sourceforge, looking at all the shiny projects, updating my skill-thingy, etc. I also had a good idea: Blogger works from anywhere with a web connection, all my classes are in the computer lab's building...so I set up a way to keep myself organized and up to date.
