Updates and an opinion from the UK

The distribution upgrades from last week are coming along, if less smoothly than I had hoped (the inline radeon/radeonhd driver is not all it's supposed to be) forcing some additional changes. Thanks to a combination of Lenovo's hardware design and some weird heisenbugs I can only have working network management and battery monitoring/power control on my Thinkpad under GNOME, KDE 4.6 seems to be a bit of a step backwards, and for some reason Wicd is only being packaged by 3rd party contributors which means it will likely be a few weeks before it's available under 11.4.

In other news of interest to no one, over ten days since my last real cigarette but my nicotine intake still fluctuates, averaging above average levels. I might just have to try getting some of the very low nicotine cartridges to test whether the high intake is likely to be more attributable to physical/mental rote actions or chemical dependence. On a related note, I found this column from The Independent few weeks ago and the more times I read it the more I like the author's points.
