I haven't done squat for coding lately.
I did get my laptop in, however. It's a Sony VAIO PCG-F420, and is quite a nice little toy.
Unfortunately, even though it has a fully capable parallel port, I can't seem to get a PLIP connection working on it...my mothership computer has an internal modem, the laptop has a useless winmodem...so I was hoping to use PLIP for bootstrapping debian off of my main computer. All the interupts, etc., yadda yadda are set correctly, but no dice. Finally I said to hell with it, and ordered a couple of ZoomAir wireless cards. They're more fun, anyway.
Also got my new monitor in, today. XF86Setup is being a bitch, though, because the vga16 driver does not display properly on the new monitor (driven by a voodoo3), and that's the only way it allows you to run...grrr. I need to RTFM on XFree86. I wish debian used xconfigurator. I guess I'll find out whether it does anything that debian dislikes during my reading.
