Hey look out for that bear! April Fool..
My absence this time was forced on me. Last Thursday I was changing
something that required a reboot, playing with the kernel. The machine
went down and never came back up again. I fooled with that sucker for
hours trying to get it to start up but no go. It did start to boot once
when I had stripped out everything non-essential but it was only toying
with me, never happened again. I am majorly bummed! So now I have been
shopping for new motherboards and processors, likely Intel, don't ask me
why but that is what I am looking for now. I have a backup machine that
I am setting up gentoo on right now, it is taking a while, this is just
an AMD K6-2 400 mhz. It works though.
Yesterday was my birthday, this kind of snuck up on me. It wasn't until
about 9am that it hit what day it was. I think I need more sleep. It
was a good day, can't complain.
