Body: Tried in vain to access the 'desktop' web interface supposedly offered by for the SideKick machine. Tried on OS/X with Safari and on Linux with Firefox. Just kept returning me to the home page. So then read the user-manual for a Digitech GNX2. A used one should be mine by the end of the week.

Body: Sent support question to Startech about a KVM product. Looked up the pictogram on for the new hacking society shirt and found, by happy coincidence, that it's called "ping" in Chinese. Read some essays from Paul Graham's "Hackers & Painters: Big Ideas from the Computer Age". Modified an script I wrote to interact with linux-ha STONITH external module to work with multiple baytech RPCs. Worked on exercise from very last chapter of "Learning Python".

Body: I spent most of the time fighting with the tough decision of HS T-shirt color. After a long deliberation I found that "kelly" (pronounced "green") would be sufficient. Next week I plan to work on spelling.
