Journal JonnyRo88's Journal: Even with distcc Gentoo never compiles fast enough

I am honestly never satisfied with compile speeds. When I had just one 450mhz nothing compiled fast enough, kernel compiles took over an hour, and everything was just well.. slow.

Now I have two 1.8ghz machines running distcc and a few slower, including the old 450 k6-2. I can generally compile a kernel is 10 minutes or less, but I am still unsatisfied.

Part of the problem is that as I get more capacity I try to do more. One would think that the logical solution would be to try to do less, but that isnt any fun either because I would fill my spare time with other things to do with computers, which puts me back in the same boat.

Thank god I got married before I reached uber-nerd status, I honestly dont think any CS major should wait past sophomore year to start trying to find a permenant mate, especially if you are into Linux.

Sidenote: Bastard UCF campus police gave me a 20$ ticket for parking in a faculty spot at 6pm. There wasnt even anyone there.

It isn't easy being the parent of a six-year-old. However, it's a pretty small price to pay for having somebody around the house who understands computers.
