Work

I'm having weird problems with making a simple bootable Linux CD. Probably just didn't get enough sleep in the last few weeks, it should be an easy task.. It's a P133 laptop I'm about to recycle for Linux, finally. It's a real relic, noone wants to use it, its battery depletes in around 5 minutes, has LCD screen, no ACPI, broken PS/2 connector, no touchpad, no USB, etc.. It cannot even read rewritable CDs, so I must test on other machines, mainly mine, and constant reboots are making me feel like a slave in the MS empire.

Sleep

Will do. We just got a new bed and a little home reorganization was done late in the night. It's really more comfortable than the older one which was moved to the parents' house in the weekend. But more testing is needed :)

Weirdness

I clicked on freshmeat's "Take me to a random project", and it took me to Pseudo Random Number Generator Daemon. Random, indeed.
