Another Day in (Paradise????)

I should say am almost done with Gentoo, except for Thunderbird (which for some wild reason starts up Mozilla). I don't think I'm going to emerge the source as its too much a drain on my bandwidth.

MySQL, Apache, xmms, LogJam are done. Quanta refuses to compile without kde headers (first it refused to compile without qt). So for now, Quanta's out of the the window. I'll switch to FC 1 for mail till I get TB working here. Solved the fat problem, it needed a umask value as well. Then discovered that I couldn't su. It kept saying "Sorry" & then figured out that in Gentoo to have access to su (the easy way) you'd have to be a part of the group "wheel". There are other more slightly painful ways which I won't bother going into for now.

Saw Bollywood/Hollywood on Star Movies. rythm & myself had planned a LONG time back to catch this movie (when it was in the theaters) but by the time we'd made up our mind it wasn't running anywhere. Lisa Ray is breathtaking. Well she always was...but then... Sheeeesh.

At the end of it all I realised it was a Deepa Mehta movie (I'd promised myself that I won't watch any of her movies) but this one was pretty nice.

What's so bad about Deepa Mehta's movies?

I wasn't too impressed by Earth. Yes it showed the pain & anguish of partition, but aprat from that one good thing, there was no movie & she wasted 2 & a half hours to make that one point.

Well its her movie :) She can waste all she wants...but that movie just didn't make it to my good books, so I didn't want to watch any more of her movies.
