I hate modules, especially core modules. I prefer code to be tightly integrated. I want it to work together. Is that too much to ask? In Drupal, most functionality has been stuffed in modules. There's a Locale module, a Content Translation module and a Path module. What's missing is a Working Together module.

This Gentoo box needs upgrading badly. I started this in February, so perhaps it's time to continue.

My friend, Wiebe, keeps his website in Subversion. (Always keep your project files in version management or you'll be sorry.)

I like GeSHi (enough even to have written a language file for it). For ages now, I've used a WordPress plugin by Dan Peverill. But for as long as I've been using the plugin, I've been looking to get rid of it.

Many X apps these days require a system tray. GNOME and KDE have system tray applets enabled in their panels by default. WindowMaker doesn't have a panel. It supports DockApps, which are, of course, much cooler. :-P
