Got lots of packages installed today (note that for x in package other-package etc etc etc; do emerge -u --deep $x; done doesn't work too well when you decide to add another package at the last minute and replace "$x" with it instead of adding it to the list.
x2vnc is handy. With it running, if I move my mouse far enough to the right it drops off my display and appears on my Windows "for testing CSS in IE" 98SE machine. No longer to I have to deal with the keyboard with too short a lead.
E17 is very nice. I love Xinerama with seperate virtual desktops on each screen. Now to decide if I poke around and see if I can work out how to customise the menus, or just switch to something more mature.
