xml-rpc advogato: *waits for yakk to implement this on the hiptop*

crusty old hardware:

Just spent a few hours trying to get two of (2x DE205 EtherWorks3, 1x DE201 DEPCA) NICs working in the same machine (to be my ADSL gateway). Failed, after trying much pain to get them on different IO ports and still able to send packets. In the process I also managed to nuke the EEPROMs of the DE205s (admittedly with a copy of ewrk3setup downloaded as a binary off some random web site). I have two choices - hack the driver to ignore the checksum on the EEPROM, or give up and grab another card or two :-(
Been back at uni three weeks, still not quite into the swing of things yet. Had a good O'day and fresher's welcome for UCC, and the AGM's tomorrow. I'm going for treasurer again, mainly because I think I would suck as president.
It's nearing 1am, and I have to be up at 6:30am for an 8am lecture :-(
