As with all my other website ventures, I have already been giving it less and less time to both work on and post on. Its probably inevitable that this site will end up stale and I’ll once again clear everything and leave the blank white page everyone is so accustomed to, if you even visit the site somewhat regularly.
Actually, I really don’t have anything to really put down. Had a hiccup on the WHS2011 box where one of the 2TBs kicked out but it was able to re-add itself and is fine now. TouchPad is still rockin, waiting eagerly for the Gingerbread Android ports from either TouchDroid or CyanogenMod groups. Both have made great headway and it is running, but not everything is fully functional yet, but its coming so YAY.
Tried to build a Linux kernel 3.0.4 for my web server, didn’t go over too well. The box came back and was functional, however there was quite a bit of lag, even at console. Not sure what that was about but I’ll revisit it, probably when 3.0.5 is out for Gentoo Hardened and I’ll tinker here and there until I figure out what the root cause is. It is said that the jump from 2.6.35 to 3.0.x isn’t anything big, more of just a Linux milestone than any real core changes, which I really don’t like. I’d rather see 2.6 reach 99 than change the major version for a milestone. That’s like what Firefox has been doing lately. 4.0 was released late last year and now we are at 7.0 already, and for no good reason either. Stupid version wars.
OH, I have been offered a bunch of 750GB Barracuda ES drives from work, might take them up on it and snag a few for use in something later. Decent size, decent performance, so I figure why not.
