As I sweat blood (see previous entry), I've been watching the progress of Gentoo Linux (PPC) on my Titanium Powerbook. For those of you who didn't know, yes, I succumbed to purchase the only laptop on Earth that could possibly appease the car mentality in everybody (and by everybody I mean me, and by me, I mean not Ian. BTW - I found your distribution, Ian!)

Yes, yes, car mentality - 1. Ooh Shiny, 2. Vector Processor, and 3. Self-optimizing Linux Distribution. I'm sorry - I'm only a man!

The gentoo penguin is renowned among ornithologists for being the fastest of all penguins.

Speaking of men, and women, yeah, that's funny, idn't it? Yup. Sure is. &lt whistles in the dark &gt

I saw Paul C.'s titanium laptop. Man, that thing is nice...

My next computer WILL be a laptop. But it will be a PC.

Just popped in to say, "Moog." When the capstones get you down, just think of a moog. Because moogs are really cool.

Looking forward to seeing you again on the other side.

Yes, by the time these capstones are over, I will be a true Dark Jedi / Sith Lord, with J.H. is Darth Sidious, and Molnar can be Jingo Fett for all I care. And I was thinking about Moogs today, and how they remind me of analog cows. Carefully tuned cows, all going "moo-o-o-o-og. Moo-o-o-o-o-og." Or something. Actually, Slivey is doing his final project in CS20 on music with Matlab, of all things, and I was telling him to check out the "Moog Cookbook" CD from WMCN. Nrif Nraf.
