Or just point it at [[Test_Day:Current]] on the wiki (which I just
made), and whenever we shift test days, just remember to keep that
updated.  Note that I put it in the Test_Day: namespace so anyone can
change it, so if it slips the collective mind, it will be easy to
fix.  I suppose you could put this in a .url file on the Desktop.

Sounds reasonable to me -- could pidgin launch IRC based on this?  Or
maybe just build in xchat-gnome?
