OK, lots and lots to talk about.
I tried to get AtheOS installed on Lady last night (I really should put up bio pages for each of my computers, so people will know what I mean when I say things like “I brought home Tramp tonight”). That was a trip. First, I kept getting corrupt boot disks, and then the installation would hang partway through (Lady has its hard drive divided into two pieces: One for Windows 98 and another for BeOS; I decided to install AtheOS over the BeOS installation). After five or six hung installs, I just
AtheOS is minimal, and definitely not ready for “regular users,” but it is functional. It feels a lot like a Unix OS, just with a BeOS shell running on top of it.

Well, I managed to get about an hour’s worth of writing done on Wine last night. I wrote the first half of the first drafts of two scenes. The first scene occurs in episode 2, in which Masaki gives Sarah a physical
While this was no great task, I was pleased that I actually sat down and spent my allotted one hour writing. I’m making progress, and it’s all because I’m learning to say “no” to easy, convenient
