First off, I want to appologize for the stuff that's been going on down at iMacLinux.net. I have no control over it (nor does any of the iMacLinux staff), I don't even have an shell at the machine at question.
What's going on? Sourceforge's mysql database is reguluarly refusing connections. Nope, the iMacLinux engine written by Stew Bendict, stores it's data in this database, and it's essential for it's proper operation. He has sent in a help request to Sourceforge, but it has yet to be anwsered.
So where does that leave us? For now, the site will be hard to access at times, try reloading the page. Sorry. In the very near future, John will be hosting this site on his own machine, that he will have full (root) control over. The only problem to expect with this, is it is on a somewhat limited bandwidth -- which shouldn't be a problem, except due to Slashdoting problems.
In short, this is what's happened over the past week:
Now the rest of what's going on with my life. Finished up Personal Fitness Merit Badge. Very Happy to have it done. Haven't been on the 'ride' lately.
Work on Eagle Scout is starting to wrap up -- it's about time, as I need to have it into council by early December. All I have left is:
On the Window Manager front, I have decided to change from KDE 2 to Blackbox + GNOME apps, at least for now, for speed reasons. I may go back in the future, I haven't decided for sure. I also messed around with my pppd stuff, so it now dials up on demand (and disconnects upon idle). That's neat.
