There's something about having a four hour sleep debt that numbs various parts of your consciousness. Microsleeps aren't fun.
Spent the past few days converting the filesystems on a server and workstation to reiserfs. Dynamic inode allocation is grand. The reiserfs-debian rescue/root disks help immensely for new Debian installations as well.
For some reason, I set up some recently decommissioned machines at work (P166s) to function as distributed.net clients. I helped a friend install the win32 version of the client, he was presented with the standard configuration dialog. I quote:
"Argh! Text-based configuration! This is Windows 2000 damnit!"
The most unfortunate part is that he's a tech. I guided him through the relevant options to allow communication through a proxy server, but I just write this off as the "mindset" (ie. total GUI interaction) that I see all too often. Wonder what would happen if I hid the mouse...
