I installed Apple's X server yesterday. Wow. All they really need to do is have individual X applications somehow pop up in the dock and it'll be lovely.

Gimp under MacosX + X is .. nice. Cheer.

Another thing I've noticed is the size of processes. Under XDarwin I found that the Xterm was 4 meg / 1 mb RSS. Xterm under Apple X is 14meg / 2mb RSS. I have a feeling that Apple is doing a lot more shared memory magic.

Terminal is about 50meg/14meg. Hm. I might start using Xterm again. :-)


Sometimes I think my car is taking me for a ride. Case in point - the alternator/regulator was very .. crap. It turns out that Bosch made a very dodgy regulator (016) which made its way into quite a few models. Including my EA. Replaced it with an (019), fixed up the contacts in my alternator and my car is ok. Again. For now.

Ah, I wonder what other geriatric parts will be found. After the engine rebuild I can't imagine ... :)
