Pondering the Imponderable

Time to upgrade to Slackware 12.0! Let's see how much I hate myself later today!

The Master comments: BwaaAAAAAAhahahahAHAHA *cough* >:-)

Update! Well, that whole experience sure did suck. ACPI problems were keeping my from accessing the new Slack 12 install from my keyboard, but I could mess with things via my other box using SSH. At least I'm in now.

Slackware 12.0 Released

Patrick Volkerding and co. have officially released Slackware 12.0, the latest update to the venerable Linux distro. The biggest changes include dropping the 2.4 line of kernels and integrating HAL and dbus. Theoretically this should make the use of things like USB drives and the like to be much easier. We'll see. Naturally, it was released while my cable modem was down.

Pondering the Imponderable

It's nice to be back online. My cable modem was down from Sunday morning until about 45 minutes ago. The problem was the drop into the house. Now everything should be OK, theoretically. It's weird how many times I said, "I'll just look that up . . . oh, wait, I can't."
