I couldn't sleep last night. So I came up with lots of interesting things to say, and then i forgot them all

Saw fight club, didn't like it, disturbing, hated the blood, didn't think the irony was that great

my new bp6 is working out well. ata66 on my nice IBM harddrive works, I got DRI to work! DRI! with my g400! DRI! I'm very happy. Now I can take out my v2 and put it in my windows box. Take out the v1 and give it to a friend

I'm really happy with my system reinstall, it went really well. i upgraded to 2.4 for dri/ata66/SoundInKernel, and then networking broke, nothing could do reverse dns lookups. I upgraded to unstable, and eveyrthing was fine, except all my gtk apps segfaulted. I killed all my packages from helixcode and installed the debian gtk/gnome stuff, and it works now.

I'm almost tempted to try KDE 2/koffice, it looks very cool

Started working on "You Might Be A Geek", partly an excercise in HTML::Template and DBI::Mysql. it will be a site where people can post "you might be a geek"... (ala Jeff Foxworthy). Then they get voted into a master listing by the community, as well as ranked. It sounds like a cool idea in my head. Need some graphics/design work though, I'm not a webpage designer. I do backend!

Still looking for a pentium-ish laptop. i really want something I can do mobile hacking on and take to LWE. Don't need a cdrom, or a network card. I'll buy a network card if I can actually scrounge up a laptop. if you can help me out, email me please. All for now, i promise there will be more later. One thing, I like the online journal, but keep hoping for feedback.

Oh right, 2 other things, mail server at school went down, it's not my baby, and I have no idea howto fix it. Considering installing an MTA on the shell server so at least people can send mail. Got an SS10, one with a framebuffer card. I don't have the root word. If I pull out & plug in the keyboard while it's on, i get a funky shell, but have no idea howto use it. It's got 32MB of ram, and 1 proc, people are telling me I shouldn't install any version of solaris on it. If you've got any ideas, let me know.
