laptop, continued...

I continue working on my laptop, making it usable. For a while there, I had two laptops, both of which I hated: the big clunky one running Linux, and the little, sexy one running OS X. Now I have the best of both worlds.

I found the linux-hfsplus project, to let me read my OS X files from Linux, but goddamn is it ever slow. Guess we know why it's not in the mainline kernel yet.

I think my Airport card is dying. The signal strength used to be at full in the house, but now (in both OS X and Linux), it's very weak. But it's not just here... it was sucking towards the end of the conference in Austin too, while everybody else was fine. I'm wondering if the internal antenna got bumped loose or something.

I was going to go furniture shopping this evening, but then I realized it's Sunday night. I need to get a dresser. The floor's been a good clothes repository for a while, but I should upgrade.
