great article. There’s a lot of good data here, though I did want to let you know something – I am running fedora with the circulating beta of windows 7, and the design of your blog is kind of bizarre for me. I can understand the articles, but the navigation doesn’t function so well.

Tired. Caffeinated. Quietly evil.

I'm a theatre technician, living and working in NYC. Also an aspiring costumer, makeup artist, playwright and dilettante.
I like to rant about things, I swear like a person who swears a lot, and I work too much. Other than that, my time is spent at home with the puppy or in Chelsea bars with friends and co-workers.
