So, what happened the last days?
I resorted to trying to install gcc on the SINIX box from a binary package. Looks promising, at least pkgadd doesn't barf anymore after I upgraded cpio, but the disks are partitioned for both/ usr and /opt with 150 MB each. How great.
Switched ISPs to a flat rate one, was annoyed at pppd failing to authenticate with no sensible error message whatsoever.
Lots of band rehearsals, seems our situation will change somewhat in the next time.
Hung out all night in what happened to become my one of my favorite chat systems (don't ask...), got into a bitter argument with one of the ops who apparently thinks it is not only his right to misuse his privileges to harass other users but his duty. Too little sleep. Now I'm awfully grumpy and have all kinds of sentiments I'd rather not have. I guess its time for another attempt at cutting down sensless 'net usage and getting more sleep instead.
