Today I got notice from the police that they have given up searching for the sucker who broke into my car and stole my oboe some four weeks ago. I was not surprised.
I didn't even bother reporting to the police that some even more stupid asshole thought it was a funny idea breaking into my empty car again last week and ruined the door locks on both sides that way. Bah. So now the car is in repair and while they are at it, they'll do winter inspection, too.
I hope I'll get it back on thursday, when I need it to transport my stuff to the booth of the local LUG at the annual computer and electronics fair. I think I'll be bringing a Personal DECstation 5000/50 I borrowed to play with MIPS-Linux on it. I first tried the RedHat-based declinux-root but then switched to Jan-Benedict Glaw's Debian mipsel-base tarball, which works quite nice. So I now just need to build a compiler for the machine before I can actually do somewhat useful things on it.
