Just a reminder to myself and others… On Gentoo, at least on amd64, when updating X you sometimes find that your mouse and keyboard don’t work. The solution to this, it seems, is to just reemerge xf86-input-evdev and then restart X. I don’t remember what causes this, but luckily it’s not that time consuming to fix.
On a non-computer related note, it’s finally spring. Last weekend (the 9th and 10th) represented the first truly nice days of the season, and while it’s a bit cooler now it’s fairly obvious that winter has left us. So go outside, and enjoy the weather.
