good shit [Mar. 19th, 2001|02:09 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
still workin' on the freevote server move.
debian rules. redhat sucks.
i'd told marcus that earlier, but now he's convinced too.
working on the debian system's a joy.
working with redhat is like ... the worst of all pains.
I used to hate those debian elitist bastards that shoved debian in my face at any possible moment, but it's so justified... go try debian out on a spare computer. you'll fall in love, too.
marcus went and got jack in the box.
that, and pizza earlier .... damn good eatin' today
going to oregon tomorrow with kenji, amy and blythe.
gonna visit my parents than go to the beach for a few days
i have several packages (including the lj-stan server) on their way.... hope they show up before I leave
ripping my whole (old) CD collection ... because I hadn't ever ripped all of them, and some of my old rips/encodings weren't great.... back in the early days of audio extraction on shitty IDE cd-roms, before they supported it natively.
that is all.
back to workin'.

Yeah. But that's probably because you're on a laptop. I couldn't get Debian to play nice with my network cards on my laptop. Redhat either. Mandrake's autodetection sent green tendrils of linuxy goodness all over the fucker, and now I've got a net drop. But if I ever get around to saving up for a desktop system (soon...) I'll be dual booting: Mandrake and Debian. And the smart money's riding on the Debian partition for the long haul. In terms of user friendly, though, distro's like 'drake will be the salvation of linux. Win the hearts of the people...their minds will follow.

I got it to work first try on my Toshiba Sat 4300 - even got a livejournal server running on it :p

Had a bit of a cow getting X to work on my flatmates Gateway tho. Once the new release comes out with x4.0.2, things will be sooo much better for laptops.

And for this I am non-trivially excited.
