Caught Frenzy. Darker, very 60s, but still Hitchcock. Last weekend included that Julia Roberts film about industrial pollution. We agreed that it made us more inclined to forgive her for her career, but that Pretty Woman was still beyond apology...

Incidentally, the Stanford Theater in Palo Alto (which does all the old movies) has an incredible pipe organ that they play between shows. I had a deviant thought involving a MIDI accordion driving the organ which, well, was just too evil for words. But maybe some day if I have a billion dollars I'll buy the place and put on accordiorgan concerts for myself :-)

Lost more time to FF7 than I care to admit. When it creeps into your dreams, you gotta take off and do something else.

Trying to get NetBSD installed on a Qube2 that I inherited from a friend's startup that grew out of it. It was to get Debian/mips but I realized that I've already got 3 Debian boxes around here and could use some variety. Besides I need to learn more about it for some workstuff. Does anyone know offhand how to do the disklabel stuff from under linux/i386? I basically intend to mount the drive on the linux side and install everything there. I suppose if that doesn't work then the preferred method is netboot it and use an NFS root, but I don't generally run NFS around here and wouldn't feel like making it all work just for this project.

The Keyspan USB driver in 2.3.99-pre5 has an Oops whenever the device is inserted. There's a patch in pre6-3 to fix it. The big TODO on that driver is to get unlazy in the 8051 firmware code and send down the device strings properly (workaround a silicon bug). The other remaining items would be stuff like HW flow control, and making sure that the driver can do weird things like handle the iButton adapter properly (more RTS/CTS games than usual).
