Well, my box just crashed... not really (had to do a soft reboot) but I did not like those "kswap cannot free page..." messages (it was, more exactly kernel: VM: do_try_to_free_pages failed for kswapd (I've checked and it seems to appear in many mailing lists at least comes up in a security announcement).

I have been able to do all my work without having to switch to M$ 2000. Navigator does fine for mail+web (I like it's addressbook although I do not like it being stored in binary format...), and StarOffice does fine for all the documents they send my in doc and xls format.

For the rest of stuff, you guess: many gnome-terminals.

I have (finally) all the Debian binary Cds, but only 1 source yet. Maybe Debian should find a way to send source+binaries out (like when Linux Central sent it) when a release is done. Thay way I could do some contributing in work (and not lose that much time downloading+toasting it)

Strangely enough, I do not find some packages in the Cds I downloaded... oh well..

I have started checking LDAP for a proyect, I will see how many free implementations are out there, curiously, when I checked for Radius stuff I saw that one of the most used has been made by Miquel (and I met him a while back :)
