The holiday season is here. Seems to me like we just finished up last year. Man the years are starting to fly by fast. Got a decent deal on a Sirius receiver at Best Buy this weekend. So far I like it and it integrates in the car and at home pretty well. Now all I need to do is figure out how I want to integrate the ipod into the car system. Can you say Wired Car? Soon we will be able to find affordable solutions to having internet in the car. It is only a matter of time.

Spent most of my time the last few weeks working on the car. Between tires, coolant leaks, and bad alternators the thing has had soon good work done on it. She is running good now tho and I feel like she will make the winter ok. All I have left that is not a need now situation, but a I want to do it just to get it done, is replace the front brakes and rotors and bleed the lines. Suppose to be decent temp. wise Monday so maybe then.

Been working on the desktop backing up data so that I could set the two sata 160gb hard drives into a Raid0 array. I cant install Ubuntu using d-i because of dmraid. I have to use the live cd to go in and install dmraid to access the drives in the raid then bootstrap it. There has been some talk recently about putting dmraid into the d-i so that it works out of the box. Maybe that is something I would like to get into. Currently I have grub installed and placed dmraid scripts in the initramfs. Now I just have to solve why it can not find init. Looks like it is not able to mount / and /dev off the cuff. More time pending, I will play around with it and make notes if need be then turn that around into the d-i stuff in debian.
