The HD download thing...
...worked, but I haven't found the will power yet to grep through for text files (less than 12k, of course).

I've been playing with JACK in my spare time, and while I was at it, I wrote a tutorial for beginners who want a quick way to get started. There wasn't one around when I started, so I wrote it as I went along. I'm quite pleased with it.

Gentoo and USE flags
I installed straw this morning, and the bloody thing wouldn't work - it kept complaining about not having the module gtkhtml2. It took a while to work out why this was, but it turned out that gnome-python needs to be compiled with --with-gtkhtml (or something similar). Now, because I don't have gtkhtml in my USE flags, this option didn't get used. What annoyed me was that gnome-python and gtkhtml were only installed because straw depended on them - so why the hell can't emerge deal with the options? Gentoo really ought to consider USE flags in dependencies. Gargh!
