Sticking with the list tradition (which seems to be the in-thing lol) ;) here's what I need to do/I'm doing right now...
- Switching to
udev(following the footsteps of louiswu)
- Switching to AC sources. Again that darn !@#$ mentioned in the previous point is the reason ;)
- Need to decide on a new mobile phone for dad & once its been purchased, flick it :)
- Need to get my firewall working. Been procastinating on that for ages. Damn!!
- Some reading up to be done on
devfs, for curiosity satisfying purposes.
I've decided to switch to Fluxbox for a while. Its performing beautifully under quite a heavy load (
00:50:56 up 5:39, 7 users, load average: 6.18, 5.84, 5.42) on my P3 500, without any hiccups unlike Gnome which would pretty much be unusable at those load averages. I just hope I don't go into another Gnome Withdrawl cycle & head right back to use it :) Oh & in case you're wondering, 2
emerges+ the AC sources compile + the 113 other processes running in the system (fluxbox included) are what's causing that load average.
And this seems to be too much of a tech post....damn. Like I care.
