I have paid homage to the espresso gods. I pumped my first short black on my own machine (I’ve used other people’s including my brother’s baby Gaggia), and it tastes fine! 🙂 The Novo comes with a frother, which will not get much use, I’d imagine. The only aggravating thing is to make it fill to the top of the cup, you need to set a memory, which is actually pretty bloody trendy as it remembers for the next time.
I’ll have to go to a nice homewares store and get some nice espresso cups – my little teacups are not snobby enough for me.
I’m getting a set of patches from a Wasabi person to patch XFree86 into a working static server. Doesn’t help with the dynamic stuff I’m working on, but it removes the uncertainty from whether my patches are helping in any way. 4.0.2 is going to be a block buster point release – many new features, really 64 bit clean (and fast). It’s going to kick butt and take names. If I were XFree86, I’d tag it 4.1.0.
