You're right, of course. *cough*

I had some trouble with using ~, actually, so I hard-coded my username. 
Probably need to use System.Environment to extract $HOME?

Unfortunately I'm busy with an assignment today so I can't make these 
edits. If some helpful soul out there wants to fix it, please do.

I just tried it, and the test shows that it, er, crashes xmonad 
silently. Obviously that's undesirable. Again, I'm short on time. I'll 
hopefully be able to dig into these issues tomorrow if no one else fixes 
them in the meantime.
