Journal Journal: It looks lame to have a journal entry updated 7 months ago

Well, I am now running Gentoo Linux on my Linux box and laptop. No KDE anymore (well, it is on the FreeBSD EPIA-800 box I use for e-mail and other sundry tasks), just pure OpenBox simplicity and wonderfulness.

Gentoo rocks.

'nuff said.

Journal Journal: Slashdot works again!

Yay! No more problems with my ISP proxy server it appears.

And I'm still using the exact same KDE3 build that I installed in April last year. :( I really should do a nice fresh install again soon... if I can be bothered.

Also I'm nearly unpacked from moving 2 years ago!

Upgrades

Journal Journal: KDE3 upgrade

Arsing fucking crappy thing from hell.

1) Remove old KDE2 installation from Mandrake Linux - Good
2) Install new KDE3 packages - Good
3) Oooh, security updates for Mandrake, better get them as well!
4) Reboot
5) LILO - Can't boot - XYZ too large
6) 2 hours later, after reinstalling the kernel whilst not reinstalling the whole darn OS...
7) Why isn't KDM working anymore?
8) Arse.
9) 3 hours later - they called the session "KDE 3" which chksession couldn't parse! Renamed "KDE3" - works.

Was it worth it? So far it seems it is!

The Internet

Journal Journal: Tired again

Crappy Java has no decent APIs for getting all information you need. MAC addresses for all NIC in a machine today - had to parse the output of "ifconfig -a" for that one (cross Unix platform requirement).
Bug

Journal Journal: I am fucking knackered

Arse moving house is a knackering experience. 2 hours sleep in about 60 hours, but the stuff has now been loaded onto the removal van and will be installed later at the new house.

Stupid damn build-your-own cardboard boxes and stupid piles of worthless paper that had to be sorted. Too many books, too many clothes, too many frickin' cables.

Journal Journal: Pointless feature

This is a pointless feature. And it goes on my permanent record. Is that like a criminal record?
