I got a broken NIC. That is why my site was downlast night and this morning.. I first thought that the network was down but I found out my old tired SMC ultra was not feeling too well.


I took a Tulip card from the other box and got my connection working again, then decided to stick the SMC to the other box, and it worked. Go figure.

I got Redhat 6.2 in a shrink wrap box. They have a sticker of the most important Linux commands that you can stick to your monitor or keyboard. Handy. The box also contained a little book consisting of one page ads of all kinds of commercial software packages. Umm. I dont know what to think. We just need more free software. But dont write a napster client, please : )

I heard Redhat 6.2 does not start inetd at all unless you need it. Jonathan said that they turned a lot of services off by default. This is very good. I might consider having a look at it for a change - it's been a long time of debian lately. Not that I am not happy with it, it is also great.

Raph, I now have an Epson. Send me the Stuff. : )
