Renovations suck, I've been working on the Kitchen and Bathroom for 5 years, In fact my whole house is a continual renovation/restoration project. The joys of being one's own slum lord in a Victorian hovel.

They are running pretty well, I can't wait for the folks over at lunatics.kwsn.net to get the Linux version of the Alex Kan v8 client out for general consumption. With the Windows client on the AMD 4200+ X2 I'm seeing anywhere from 25% to 40% improvement over the previous optimized client depending on the work unit. They have just released a version for SSE2 processors as well.

I enjoy visiting the East coast, I was in New Brunswick last summer for a few days and had a great time.
London is not too bad a place to visit during the summer months there are various festivals, plan on muggy heat and humidity. Sadly I have to confirm there is no Buckingham Palace, but you might see a queen or two.
Actually in all honesty I'll tell you how bad London is, two of my brother's kids moved to Winnipeg!! ;-)
