21 Jun 2000 » depression There’s so much macho crap about being your average beer swilling Aussie male that it’s really hard to grasp the concept of being on a drug for more than a course of anti- biotics (about 2 weeks). I might be depressed from time to time, thinking about my family’s tragic […]
18 Jun 2000 » laptops and Suse I’ve had a horror week, not least caused by Partition Magic ripping the guts out of my laptop when I moved and resized my Win2K partition to make room for a fullish install of Suse 6.4. Luckily I don’t trust PM or any partitioner, and so I had […]
29 May 2000 » Got my boxed copy of SuSE 6.4 x86. woohoo! Now I can figure out |x86| > |axp|, and try to bring them closer together.
28 May 2000 » work Debugging the OSF netscape image running on Suse, which apparently shipped with the 6.4 image. In 2.2.14, there’s two unimplemented osf syscalls + a poorly guessed osf syscall causing the hard wedges. Does anyone have good OSF (TruUnix) documentation of the syscalls? I’m interested in calls 0, 53 and set_program_attributes. […]

26 May 2000 » Win2K spontaneously reboots if I press eject in the cd player or on the little button on the front of my soon to be ex-work’s Toshiba laptop. I rang MS a few days ago to report it. I spent 40 minutes waiting to speak to a PSS drone. They made me […]
24 May 2000 » Everything is done. I’m now a Suse contractor, working on alpha specific stuff. I’ve resigned from e-Secure, my current employer, and they’re a little disappointed, but that’s to be expected. I’m moving back to Melbourne as it is truly a more liveable city than Sydney. I get to work from home, […]
18 May 2000 » work The basics are done. I need to dot the i’s and cross the t’s. Then I can spill beans. hackery Downloading a big iso image for Blossom, my alpha at a massively unimpressive 10.37 kB/s. ftp.suse.com is too far away. Thinking of becoming a tempoary kernel hacker to ensure that […]
12 May 2000 » work Fellow master procrastinators, I paid big time today. My fingers are mucho sore from doing much typing. Good thing I don’t have bad wrists (yet!). work morphs into hackery or vice versa But joy! A wonderful thing has happened! More on this issue once the paperwork has been done. There’s […]
(This is a re-post from Advogato, which I no longer use.) 11 May 2000 » Procrastinating is fun. I’m doing it now. I’m going to pay for it tomorrow.
