Hmm, what's new...
Arrakis (The routing computer at relsquis
parents home) is now running Gentoo Linux
It's been a marginal trial because the disk drive
is about a gigabyte in size total.
I'm trying to get X on here by compiling it on l
and moving it over, but no luck so far =/
I met leathermessiah not so very long ago
She was at Coquelet when relsqui and I went.
She strikes me as someone I'd like to actually chat with
instead of the yammer-and-run sessions we've had thus far.
Hung out with koneko666 and watched Pulp Fiction.
I haven't seen that movie in too long =/ I almost
forgot that it was shot in LA. The scene that reminded
me was when Butch (the boxer) goes back to his apartment
for the watch.
I've seen squeekiemouse a few times. She's
coming by tomorrow after school.
I'm glad that my gal has lots of neat people as friends 8)
Future plans: I'll be leaving for LA with relsqui,
stonesundial, and a bunch of other folks
on the 17th. I want to get back to SC before then
and meet my new housemate within the context of the
Sorry about the mass updates to all. I've been
trying not to use the graphical computer and since
I can't see my comics on the router (yet), I've
avoided checking my LJ.
Ok. That's all.
Oooh! I'm about halfway through relsqui's
book about knights, spies, and pirates. I've read
through 3 separate victories in my other book. I
remain amazed that we weren't re-annexed by England
in the war of 1812. The war was intended to be an
aggressive war and yet we only managed to take little
bits and pieces of Canada at a time.
Ok. Really. That's all folks ; )
Gentoo is my distro of choice. It's the only kind of Linux I currently run, though I had to use Debian to install it on a few of these machines.
Oh -- and about the X thing... are you buildpkg-ing or ? Someone with as many computers as you should use distcc.
I'm building packages on my server which is running distcc. I didn't bother including the computer in question in the distcc fun. Not only is it the slowest box of the bunch, but it's at relsqui
s residence, not mine own.
Good taste, though I used slackware to install a few of them ; )
I used Slackware's boot floppies to install Gentoo on this 486 laptop ;-)
You just didn't try hard enough ; )
It's much happier now. I won't be happy unless X is on it though.
I'll give you 1.2gb in a way you aren't going to soon forget! At least I managed to trim things down to 61% of the drive, but that's still not counting X.
Man, X is losing major respect here. I wish Fresco or Y-Windows would get their act together.

Re: New Housemate?
It's quite possible that Carl'll leave by then. He wasn't sure how long he was going to be there.

Re: New Housemate?
Nah, I knew you expressed some interest but summer's kind of a long way away. Paying rent is fun and all, but I like paying rent for just one room and not 1.20 rooms =/
That being said: I'd rather have you in than Carl. You're actually interesting and cool and stuff. Carl's kind of a technoweenie =/
