Hmmph. Cable's back working again. They had some horrible problem causing major slowdowns, to the point where the Redhat DHCP client couldn't get a lease (Win98's could though, how embarassing for the Penguin).

Still couldn't get XingDVD to behave - I seem to have picked up a config problem where Wine can't load any of Windows' ACM compression drivers now (so Media Player, which used to play some stuff, is broke now too). Aiiigh :/

Nice to see Marcus and BBrox reading Cryptonomicon - I finished that just over a year ago, courtesy of my hell trip to the Creative Labs' developer conference. Highest possible recommendation for any thinking person.

Interesting legal day - Napster's goin' down, and things are looking up for DeCSS/2600. Dr. David Touretzky is a serious hero - not only has he been picked by Scientologists, he may well be why the good guys win the 2600 trial.
