3 years +epsilon later...
Again, forgot that this thing exists. So here's an update:

I'm still EQ to myself. Here's the obligatory list of recent changes in this instance of #<SYSTEM-CLASS PERSON> (if anybody writes a persistence library that works with people, I'd very much like to test it, by the way):

I stopped believing in FreeBSD when portupgrade said I'd have to fetch a script from the web and run that in order to upgrade a desktop environment I didn't even want to use. That should have been my clue to stop, turn around and run. Instead, I did what it said, and the script went on and upgraded all ports for a few days, then gave up. Yay port systems. Switched to Debian on the server, and Mac OS X on the desktop. Yay mostly-good upgrade paths, and working keyboard focus!

More friends were found. Some were lost. Read vastly more books, and listened to lots of new and old music.

I think I escaped the capitalistic meat grinding machine for the moment. I'm working as a freelance hacker right now, and finishing my first university degree.

Cut off my hair, didn't have much luck with Jiu-Jitsu and Aikido, am now taking courses at a local gym. The keyboard tray idea didn't work, either. Who would have thought it was this hard to get a height-adjustable keyboard tray in Austria?

See you in another few years!

I must have forgotten that this thing existed...
In fact, I have.

<Xach> antifuchs: your journal is out of date
<antifuchs> Xach: I don't keep a journal (:
<Xach> http://www.livejournal.com/users/antifuchs/ is your journal!
<Xach> "Now all I have to do is get a good scheme lib for gtk+ ..."
<antifuchs> whu?
<antifuchs> I'm not sure that the person keeping the livejournal and me are eq (:
<antifuchs> oh
<antifuchs> hmm!
<antifuchs> this is me
* antifuchs doesn't remember ever writing this
[time passes]
<Xach> antifuchs: so you *are* eq
<antifuchs> so we are (:
<antifuchs> but I have been change-classed a few times since then (:
<antifuchs> this feels very weird (:
<antifuchs> this must have been a time when livejournal was still free and all was well
<antifuchs> Xach: this is really very shocking (:

Now, have I really changed?

Geek-wise, not really. Apart from some minor changes of belief (using freebsd now instead of linux, yoink!) I started studying Computer Science in September 2001; and I started using Lisp as my main programming language sometime in 2002.

As a person, very much (I think). I do no longer live with my parents, instead I live in Vienna; my girlfriend, Veronika (no link yet) moved in with me last September. Many new friends found, some old not-so-friends forgotten. Many experiences had and made. Many books read I which had always wanted to read (and even some I had never imagined I wanted to).

As a piece of work potential in the capitalistic meat grinding machine: yes, very. I now have a job (which even makes me moderately happy), at a medium-sized yet professional Internet Service Provider in Vienna.

As a piece of bones surrounded by human flesh: not much; still look mostly the same (hair a little longer, beard sometimes not shaven off). I have had my first case of RSI since I started typing, and took the consequences: I'm probably going to start at a local Jiu-Jutsu club (or anything else which requires movement of things other than the fingers/hands), install a keyboard tray (this fscking desk is way too high for me!) and take my chair's arm rests off.

As a music receptor: some. I still enjoy listening to Bauhaus and gothic stuff, but found more stuff I like: A T R (and digital hardcore in general), german punk from the 70s/80s, and much, much more stuff.

Hm, this should give you a general impression of antifuchs today. Do not expect this journal to be updated regularly. Better wait 2 years or however long it takes me to forget it before reminding me again of its existence - maybe I'll update it, even. (-:

Let the hacking commence!
I am about to start the calendar & todo list tool I designed.

Now all I have to do is get a good scheme lib for gtk+ (or gnome, preferably) and a good tutorial for jabber transports.
