Fast User Switching
I found out today when I was fiddling with GDM that it already has the ability to find out if a user is already logged in, and will even ask you if you want to use the existing session or start a new one. This is a major part of a possible "Fast User Switching" implementation for Gnome.
Bye Bye Blog-Spam
Ludovic: Thanks for suggesting MT Blacklist. It was able to remove 27 comments with the default blacklist and another 65 when I added the 3 urls of the spammers that hit me recently. Hopefully thanks to MT Blacklist I'll be alble to keep comments enabled, I really like having my blog interactive.
I'm now running Linux 2.6 from the rpms for Fedora. It's really hard to tell what's changed. For some reason my mouse is much faster and moving windows is creating a whole lot of artifacts. Can't really say I'm feeling any extra responsiveness or speed or anything like that :/
