You know, sometimes I just

March 3, 2001

You know, sometimes I just hate computers…..oh yes I definately do today. I’ve been working on Maggie this morning and late last night and in the course of the past few hours, I’ve installed every Linux package I have. From Caldera (my favorite) to Definite Linux to NetBSD (though not really a Linux). I installed everything to a point that everything loads up perfect…..except for the mouse. I thought it might have been something I did with the install….nope….the BIOS hasn’t been touched and it had Win98 on there a few weeks ago with no problems. I tried swapping the ports with some I have in storage…nope the damn thing wouldn’t work. I’m going to try a few more things to see if I can get it to work, then I’m going to swap memory and cpus, I’m going to see if anything is screwed up enough to kill this machine. I know it’s a long shot, but I’m still going to try. I have a pittyful little 586 board I will install and pop Definite linux on in a matter of minutes. That board is ancient, but it still works….and that’s what matters.

I’m still trying to get my office together……It’s still a frikin mess….

I still want to have a giant sell off of my equipment. Maybe not for what it was initially intended, but just to get this crap out of here.
