Those of you who reguluarly read iMacLinux, will notice our new discussion question. The idea is that every few weeks we post a question to everybody in general, with the author's opinion of the question, and readers can give there feed back.

This week it's about the "Quik" booter loader, and distro's support of it. It posts the question of should distros support it, and to what extend. I brought this topic up, as Quik documentation is hard to get at now days, and while most distros include Quik, there is no automated install when setting up the distro, like is avalible for yaboot (in the October LinuxPPC release).

Future ideas for discussions include:

  • What area of PowerMac-specific configurations needs the most improvements?
  • Which PowerMac model do you recommend?
  • Old World vs. New World vs. CHRP. Which OpenFirmware is the nicest to work with, and get working.

    Also, I have another G&H in the works, but it's not ready yet...


    The long Thanksgiving day week is finally here. I can't wait until Thanksgiving dinner, not to mention the prades and "It's a Wonderful Life".

    Speaking of that, I now have ripped several of my Christmas CD's (and downloaded songs I have on records and CDs and some others <grin>), so I have a nice collection to listen to for the holidays.


    I got my Family Life family council done. Now I just have to write it up, and run it by Edge. I heard back from Mr. Rapp over the weekend, he is sending me a letter of thanks, I'll try to get him to sign off my Eagle Service Leadership book soon. All I have left now is my Family Group Project (a holiday video for my Grandparents), and all of that wonderful paperwork stuff. I really want to have the paperwork filed by the weekend of December 5 (the weekend after this one).


    Yesterday, I did my Particapation in Goverment presentation on FCC's decission to suspend the fair time act. I'm glad to have that done, and I am glad I am now going on break from school, until next Monday.
