Grr.... I've been trying to download the latest Mozilla source code (30Mb) in chunks over my ISDN line. Fine, except what I didn't realise was that Mozilla use multiple DNS records to load-balance between a few servers which contained different versions of the file!. (I was downloading the "latest source", and one server had a different idea about what "latest" meant.) So I managed to download a stripey tarball... a section of one file, then a section of the second, then back to the first again... and so on. Oh well... I'm going to download using the server's IP address in future.
Remember my attempt to make a 486-based Linux box which I've been talking about for a few days? Well, apparently (now they tell me!) it's got to run Lotus (IBM) iNotes - a Java-based, IE-specific Lotus Notes client, which needs a 400MHz processor. So I won't get that on Linux on my 486 then.
Actually, it might end up useful, if I can persuade them to turn on Notes's IMAP server. But the chances of that are rather close to zero. ("We have paid for iNotes! We *will* use iNotes!" etc. Sigh.)
Electronics homework (lots)
Well, I like electronics, but there is a limit! It didn't help that I only rememered it fairly late. No time for further hacking...
