Spent an hour battering pppd into auth'ing itself with BT internet - finally got it to work. Seems fast, but it has the annoying 2 hour disconnect problem.

Built 2.3.49 on my Alpha; this seems good - its fast and hasn't screwed up my disc!

Built Mozilla M14 - well it got a window up; but some parts were unrendered leaving bits of the lower windows showing through, and after a minute or two it fell to bits. Ah Mozilla.

Built 2.3.47 on my Alpha ; spent rest of afternoon recovering disc partition..... Built XFree 3.9.18, patched GLX for alpha.

Tried crossing Niki Waibel's hacked Alpha 3dfx device driver with my hacked Glide code and got the 'test' programs to blink the monitor off and hten hang. Well I suppose that is something -but I'm not sure what.

(Note: Never put a table leg just in front of where it would be really nice to put your monitor...)
