The British Invasion #1 landed on Thursday so didn't get a lot of work done over the weekend :(

PCMCIA-CS breaks on 2.4.x because I've removed the drivers/net/tokenring/ibmtr.h file. He, he, I'm not putting it back, pcmcia-cs will have to be fixed. So giving in I'm going to test pcmcia-cs against all three levels of kernel (2.0,2.2 & 2.4) and see what needs changing to get it to work with all of them. Of course, 2.0.39 decides not to compile up on my machine. First off mkdep was SIGBUS'ing. Grabbing mkdep from 2.4 fixed that, but now all the includes are wrong. Debian doesn't symlink /usr/include to the kernel source (quite right too) but the 2.0.39 build scripts think they do, so I'll have to fix all that up first. *sigh*

Loaded up a copy of Elite:FFE to play and found that modern machines are just too quick and I'm getting blown away in seconds before I have a chance to zero in a missile the baddies. Perhaps if I play it under vmware it will slow it down enough :)

Gave up with NS 6 on the iMac, the extra memory speeds it up but it still sucks. So it's now got Mozilla 0.9 instead which is working fine as long as you don't try to quit with no windows open.
