More Caffiene!

Probably the nearest and dearest thing to a geek's heart after his boxen is his source of caffiene. My Bunn coffee maker was beginning to leak rather seriously so we had to look for a replacement. We found it in this Cuisinart DTC-975BK. It's got a thermal carafe that will supposedly keep coffee hot for eight hours and warm for 12. I've verified that it keeps it hot for six. It's one of the rare ones that has thermal carafe larger which holds more than eight cups (this one holds 12). Plus you could probably beat an intruder to death with the carafe if you needed to.

Linux Games Facelift

I'm a sucker for a fresh web design, so I have to point out Linux Games' new look. I like it much better than their old Halloween-esque scheme.

Even More 2.6.1

What little computer time I've had the past several days (and I still need about an extra day this week) was spent on ironing out some more issues with the Linux 2.6.1 kernel. I'm now booting to it by default. The only major issue that remains is getting Dosemu (a DOS emulator) working. It seems that the fix that memory management problem (story) broke something with it. It works with 2.4.24, but not with 2.6.1. Linus himself wrote a patch to fix it. I'll have to figure out what I need to do to apply it, or wait until 2.6.2 comes out.

The fix I described on Wednesday also allowed me to get MIDI working with ALSA. I even loaded one of my SoundFonts to make it sound all nice and wave-tabley. I know I probably shouldn't be that amused by MIDI, but I am (although not as amused as The Master is).
