Some short log of current activities: unicodified the AGG (should be working now, but needs some testing - write me if you're interested). I got OSX Leopard running under VirtualBox at home. Also, I recorded two guitar clips and added them to YouTube - Shine on you crazy diamond pt1 (Pink Floyd cover) and Falling rain (Labyrinth cover). Oh, and also got rid of my facebook - it was such a pleasure deleting it :)
