The New Office
The new office
rocks! It is well-lit, comfortable, reasonably spacious,
and most importantly, feels like a place where work gets
done. Two thumbs up
-- way up. I moved with three cardboard boxes of
stuff, and have unpacked/condensed it down to one. I
even found a little picture of Bullwinkle on a candy bar
wrapper to hang up in my cube.
I only talk about software in my diary entries once in a
while. If this bothers you, please look for other diaries
This command hard-locked my system yesterday:
I closed gkrellm (which was monitoring activity on the
vmnet1 interface) and disabled the interface with ifconfig
vmnet1 down, but still the crash. I know, stupid me, use
"/etc/init.d/vmware stop" next time. But instead (after
reboot) I opted
for "mv /etc/rc2.d/S90vmware /etc/rc2.d/K90vmware". :)
Mutt bug (versions 1.01 and 1.2)
Mutt's advance-on-message-tag action in the index mode
doesn't work as I would expect. For an example, let's
imagine a mailbox with three messages:
- "j"ump to message 2.
- "d"elete message 2.
- "j"ump to message 1.
- "t"ag message 1.
This should put you to message 3, but instead it moves to
message 2. The problem is, if you wish to tag the message,
you can. But to un-tag the message, you have to use the
"j"ump command and specify message 2 explicitly, because
cursor keys will skip over "D"eleted messages by default.
- Make the "t"ag feature advance-on-tag with recognition
of deleted messages, skipping over them (preferred)
- By default, skip over "D"eleted messages, but do not
skip over "D"eleted and "*"-tagged messages. (I guess this
is only useful if there is a good reason to delete
and afterwards tag a message, but I don't suppose
people tend to do this. I only end up doing it by accident
because of the problem described above :D )
clyde is the name of my home machine. It is running
well, and everything seems to be happy. I have been
tracking the sblive driver
snapshots every few days. It's great to have sound. Hey,
what would anyone recommend for wav-recording in Linux? I
would like to take the line-out from my mixer and try to
record a dj mix. I'm too cheap/lazy to go out and get a DAT
recorder right now. Some of you might want to know who clyde is.
As much as I once thought I hated drum'n'bass, I found a
mix CD that I really enjoy. It is the instrumental version
Bukem's Progression Sessions vol.4. I guess this isn't
straightforward drum'n'bass, but it is more melodic and
atmospheric. Whatever it is supposed to be called, I
