So, even though I’ve been following the formation of the new Echo movement, I’ve not really been posting much or hacking much. Probably this has to do with my current mental state, but also because I now have a new laptop. Last week, I bought a new P4 2.2GHz with 640Mb of RAM. It makes a nice DVD player.
Seriously, because it is new — the only new system I’ve bought — it needs newer drivers, so I’ve been tracking down Linux support for some of the hardware. In the process, I’ve compiled the latest Kernel and found some of migration pitfalls. It may appear that I enjoy that kind of thing, but appearences can be deceiveing.
Oh, yeah… I’m running Debian unstable on this sucker and loving the beautiful Gnome2 desktop and MozillaFirebird browser. Very nice.
