I put Debian on the Mac Mini using Release Candidate 3 of the Sarge installer. It almost worked flawlessly - but it failed at the installing yaboot stage. I tried again, this time with my extra firewire drive unplugged, and it worked. That was too easy - much easier than I expected. The next step is to buy a putty knife, and do the 1GB DDR memory upgrade. Beyond that, I'm going to try to run user mode linux on it. I've also always wanted to try Mac on Linux. :-)

I installed Blojsom at work. Unfortunately, it didn't work on Kaffe. I'll have to dig deeper, but I think it found a bug in our regex code (but I could be mistaken).

I managed to cook up some Perl code so I could post from the command line using Net::Blogger from CPAN and the Movable Type API (my initial attempts using XML::Atom weren't as lucky). So now, when I do a build at work, the details of the build get posted to my little in-house blog. The next step is to write a bookmarklet that I'll be able to click on, and have the build automatically scheduled to run on one of my test machines. I'm quite excited by the concept of using blogging technology to glue together all the various testing scripts I'm working on. Once I get it all prototyped, I'll try to set the same thing up on the outside for Kaffe, and also for some other projects I'm playing with.
