Well it appears that I have fallen victim to the kernel bugs of the 2.4.18. It finally ate my IDE drive and I am rebuilding my box from the ground up. Luckily I was able to recovery the xfs partition and reclaim some files I needed. Unfortunately it ate like 250 inodes and linux no workie very well anymore.

Normally I would not have cared so much, but I was scheaduled to do a broadcast for WOPN and I had to cancel it. I have a lot of new things planned for my show including artist interviews and a battle of the bands sort of feature. Details need to be re-worked so I guess its all good anyways.

I have the base of the new gentoo box and I am sitting here waiting for X to compile. I will likely be here for days watching it compile, but since I know a watched pot will never boil, I am going to talk away for a while and just wait... and wait... and wait...
