Compiling 2.4.13pre2 on a new dual processor P3-500 I got from a friend. You know who you are, and if you're reading this, thanks! The box will make a very cool server for my new IPs just received when Verio sold their DSL business to Earthlink. So far all that has happened was a 2 hour outage while the technician switched my line over, and I received a /248 subnet instead of the /250 subnet I used to have, which means 4 new completely unused IPs to stick up outside on my DMZ. I'm quite psyched about that.
mperry, no worries. I didn't know you were going to be away from the house so much - you made it sound like you'd be sitting around playing on your computers all day. :-)
And it is a bit wierd seeing an advogato diary response to a phone call I made - a wierd cross-modality interaction there. Cool, nonetheless.
Sweet! My compile is done. Off to install the new kernel.
