Totally Ferret

Assorted Geekery

The Death Star's motherboard is fried - I'm running from Siddhartha, which finally recognizes my hard drive due to bullshit udev and coldplug problems on gentoo. Death Star's motherboard no longer recognizes the mouse or the sound card, and is now taking less and less time to freeze to a halt between boots.

Any ideas on a stable motherboard for an Athlon XP 2600? This one seems to have capacitor-related issues, if my novel experiences with the Dell problem are anything similar.

Also, I found that when you max out the "Sharpen" field in the Gimp, you can make any picture look like it's from the Wall Street Journal. If I can get permission from the subject, I will show you.
