yay, I *finally* got a new battery for my laptop! :) it’s only a 6-cell – I’ve given up on trying to find a 9-cell – but it’s certainly better than my poor old 3-cell that’s giving me less than an hour of power these days… it looks like I’ll be able to get about 3 hours out of the new battery. :) that means I no longer have to be constantly checking for power outlets.
I suppose it won’t matter quite so much this semester, though – I have 12 credits worth of mandarin and nothing else. 4 hours a day in one classroom. I do hope we get more than one break a day; I cannot sit in a chair that long.
as for kopete: I need testers! it seems I’ve completely lost the data about one of the aim bugs, and iirc I’m going to have to do a lot of reverse-engineering for icq, so I need people with the official clients that are willing to accept and send files over and over and over.
