Man, KernelTrap has been busy in the past week. It seems like there have been more new stories posted than ever before. The story I was interested in was the journaling file system benchmarking; I'm pretty hardcore on ReiserFS, and it's treated me well, but I do run ext3 on my rsync backup box for the sake of diversity. (For Whit's benefit:) I find it very amusing that a fs test suite is called Bonnie; apparently she'll test your hard drive like the real Bonnie tests your patience....
After my stressed out Sunday, I recouped by sleeping almost the entire day away. I'm not entirely sure why; my body must have been telling me to do so. Sometime around 4pm, after getting 4 phone calls, and a knock at the door, I decided to wake up. After screwing off for a couple of hours, Lisa got home. She was exhausted too, and admitted that the full-on Bremerton winter weather was starting to get to her. An obvious solution to us was to hop in the car and head over to Seattle for a dinner at Belltown Pizza. I absolutely love that place; great atmosphere, a cool bar, and music at all times. Sometimes a bit loud, but if it's not loud, it's no good, right? They have the absolute best Caesar salad I've ever had. It's not all goopy with too much dressing like others; it's just enough to give you a nice flavor on the greens, and with fresh ground pepper, it's awesome! Also of note was the Carol's garlic pie I ordered. I admit my ordering is not very interesting, but I don't think it gets much better than Carol's, except for maybe with olives, which Lisa doesn't care for.

I finally managed to get going on installing Yellow Dog Linux on a PowerMac 6100 that I've had sitting around in the garage. NuBus PowerMacs, and 61xx series machines in particular, have always had a place in my heart in spite of their slow speed and thrown-togetherness from an architectural standpoint. This is probably because in November of 1997, when I had just gotten stationed here, I elected to buy a used Performa 6115 from Computer Renaissance instead of a Beige G3, or 8600 from the Navy Exchange. I did this to save a few hundred dollars, and not fully understanding the Macintosh hierarchy, I began a 2.5 year love/hate relationship with a machine that I paid way too much for and that was already obsolete. When I realized within a few months that I didn't have enough power or storage space to do the stuff I wanted, I should have cut my losses and bought a new machine. But being hardheaded, I poured more money into it, and it saw RAM upgrades, new hard drives, an ethernet transceiver installation, and a MicroMac "PowerBoy" accelerator (which was really just a Sonnet Crescendo 604 upgrade, which sucked, BTW). But in the end, I can credit that machine with a lot. I learned a lot about MacOS, enough to get me a job later at RePC, and through the miracle (or abomination depending on who you ask) of MkLinux, that machine provided me with my first foray into Linux. Come to think of it, I used that machine as an NFS server for my first IA32 Linux machine, because I was too broke to get a hard drive, for the first six months.

The Listamatic shows the power of CSS when applied to one simple list. Hummm.... I never knew such simple CSS could be used for such good results. Reminder : Read about this
I've never made a blog entry before in my life. Whee! This is fun!
In order not to earn a reputation as somebody who makes blog entries without content, I shall report that the latest CVS version of the DRI radeon driver (available here) fixes the texture problems that have made gaming on my laptop painful. Hooray! Unfortunately Neverwinter Nights still has big lighting problems.
