I think you'd be surprised what business goes on in Arizona.

Let's just say if you've got the latest intel processor, or an iPod, or if your company just bought a shiny new Sun box (I know, not as likely as last year), there's a good chance it or parts for it were built, programmed, or integrated in a Phoenix suburb.

Oh yes, and a former San Francisco icon had decided to move it's headquarters to that same suburb a few years ago. Don't know how far along that ever got. I'll give you a hint, stagecoach.

It's running gentoo on an embedded 500MHz geode chip to act as a MIDI controller. 24 frets stand tall over a touchscreen, and the demo video show that it shreds! The creator has promised to release the source code, so C++ hackers should have plenty to play with. Which leaves only two questions, when is it going to available? And how much does it cost?"

So far I've found that flash doesn't seem to work anymore, despite being the latest version. Also, I still have the old "Roll 'em up" pinball game, played fine under Ubuntu 9.04, gets choppy at times under 9.10.

I was almost convinced that there was a DNS problem, but it just so happens that my ISP decided to start sucking again right after the upgrade.
