Computing

I've been battling with Debian Sparc on a 2 processor Sparc20 for a while now. It's real flaky and the networking locks up fairly regularly. I've got an idea it's something to do with the SMP support since it acted ok (I think) before I switched to the SMP kernel.

This is the machine that was hosting grump.org so if you've visited there lately you've just as likely gotten a connection refused as anything else. It also acts as primary MX for 2 other domains and secondary MX for a few others, so I couldn't simply let it be. I've migrated everything to a spare Intel box we had at the office, and I'll take the Sparc completely off the internet while I figure out what's wrong with it.

Ugh. I hate bugs.

bytesplit: The letter to Bill Gates was a joke. In fact, the technical details in it are positively ludicrous. I did actually mail it though. I'll post if I get a response.

cmiller: Where have you been? The office is too dadburn quiet with you out.

Musings

Photo.net is rapidly becoming "graphic-design.net". Most of the highly rated photos are not photos at all, but are over-photoshopped monstrosities that are just sorta barely related to something that once looked like a photo.

Hrmph.
