Well the laptop has been running mostly well since I upgraded it. Just a few times when it really had problems. Most of those seem to have been solved by making KDE start a fresh session every time rather than trying to use what I had running last time. It means a bit of manual tweaking each time I log in, but I tend to just leave it on most of the time.
I have Jono and James here this week working with me and we are attacking both features and usability issues with Launchpad and Bazaar. I feel that things are coming along nicely.
I've just joined a squash club, but yet to organise my first game. I know that I'll be really stiff after the first smack around.
