I started Gaim today, and it complained that it could not log into Yahoo Instant Messenger. Network outage, or Yahoo following MSN's lead and locking the Linux-using riffraff out of their network? Time will tell...

I've gotten to the point where I can't fit any more music on my 20Gb Archos Jukebox Recorder without deleting something, and I've deleted most of the obvious things I'm not going to listen to.
