Hey all, new in the advogato community, figured I should start writing here so some people will know/remember who I am.

Wow, just started playing with the GnomeCanvas, Much better then GtkDrawable+GdkPixmap for double buffering. GnomeCanvas has relaly cool grpahics primitives, it's much more powerful, much easier, built in double buffering, and i can get anti-aliasing or cool configurabilit+speed.

Met the head of Linux Global Partners at last night's nylug meeting. Really cool guy, knows what he's talking about. LGP is great for the community. He also has a great vision for linux on the desktop.

Gah, need to rip out my mobo tonight, trading it to a friend for a BP6. Sucks in the short run, better in the long run. It's an ABIT VT6X4, Via Apollo 133A chipset. All 2.4 does is say "hda: lost interrupt" during intensive disk I/O, forcing a hard boot and causing fs corruption. More later, I need to look like I'm working.
