We've resurrected some dead code that was pretty ugly but the only worse MESS (officially sanctioned, no less) than STL that we've ever seen is the spaghetti in lex/flex output. -- The Computer Mad Science Dept.


Now what?


...what would ANY good Computer Mad Scientist do in a situation like this?

Today's features are

I have quite a few Ubuntu installations in the wild, set up for friends and clients. I support them all -- well, those of them that require support -- using Gitso, which is a nice little front end to x11vnc and vncviewer, with connections tunnelled over ssh.
