-- took exising windows machine ("dozer") apart and swapped out video cards with the new one i bought. (bought a voodoo 3000 (cheap) to go into the living room linux box, so i had to move my old voodoo 3500 TV from dozer to pepper.)
-- i then copied all my files over from dozer to pepper (not many, most my files i keep on my linux box)
-- i then reformatted dozer and installed linux... dozer is now "songx0r" (thanks to erik for the name)
-- songx0r is now in the living room, with an irman remote control receiver hooked up to it, being the living room mp3 appliance, hooked into the stereo and TV (but I can't figure out how to get the voodoo 3000's TV out to work under linux... need to go find documentation)
blythe was over on and off most the day as well. a bunch of us went to red robin's for dinner. i did my chore (vacuuming the basement and stairs) and other people all did theirs too (else we have to pay a $5 penalty... good incentive to spend 10-15 minutes doing our solitary weekly chore)
tomorrow i have more computer stuff to attend to:
-- need to put my new 60gb harddrive in my linux box.
-- need to fix songx0r's broken network cable running from the kitchen to the living room
anyway, now i sleep... class hell day tomorrow. no fun. night.
