Had a mostly good Christmas. I got the nifty new MS mouse
which seems to be working fine with 2.2.12, backported USB
drivers, and X. I love not having to use a mousepad! Also
got some random books, CDs, and Writing Solid Code by MS
Press. Only on raph's recommendation did I add that to my
Brother got a Diamond V770 TNT2 graphics card. Stupid thing
kept locking hard during any 3d operations. Found that we
needed the AGP miniport drivers and some IRQ thing to fix

But now half of the games he wants to play won't work for

either. They just drop back to Explorer without a dying
So, I'm getting tired of my old K6 233. Today I ordered an
Athlon 500, FIC SD11 motherboard, a new case, and some ram.
Should arrive sometime this week. I can't wait. :)
