Trace tool is working again... got SpecWeb traces for single and dual processor setups (marketing seems to care about those) in the bag. Currently working on rewiting the controlling software to do a primitive raid0 across 2 diff ramdrives... should be a hoot

Painfully little done on the IS since everything's been so crazy with tracing (PCI cards that don't behave, some cards that don't even show up, random kernel problems, etc). It's going to be very hard to rationalize a lan party over the weekend when I'm so far behind in the IS work *sigh* I really oughta just get outta the PhD and come back later when I'm more motivated and have a decent topic in mind. We'll see.

I need to meet more people. I think one of my problems career-wise is that people don't meet me (I know, it's my own fault for getting too busy to make the Expo last year) and so I end up being a holed-up labrat stuck being overqualified for the crap that gets thrown at me... I know, stupid rant, but I really want to get out and get into more diverse positions... tracing has been fun and all, but at some point you realize your skill-learn-rate isn't what it used to be, and more importantly it isn't what it needs to be.

I really gotta figure out why 2.3.99-pre6 breaks the eepro100 on the 7000M10 machine... it's just bizarre that a driver so rock-solid for me in every other possible machine and configuration would start giving me problems now.

Back to tracing... Worse slavery than a code monkey.
