The good news first (with a hint of bad):
I received my iPod today along with the iSkin case which did not fit properly on the 80GB model. :(
Then the bad news:
Stratos (one of my cats) has been gone a couple of days which has never happened before. :( I hope she is back when I get home from work today.
Edit: Another thing to add on the bad news side … I got a new machine yesterday that will replace my server at home, but it turns out that the chipset on the mainboard is not fully supported by the kernel that debian uses, so I can’t install that either… wohoo!
