Bunch of stuff  
So, back from non-internet-having hell. Well, sortof non-internet-having hell. BEGIN-GEEKING -> The box what rocks was having some problems related to libraries that I installed improperly . . . and drivers from The Graphics Card Company Which Shall Not Be Named. So, I figured it was as good a time as any to start up another Gentoo Linux box - and man oh man is it sweet. How sweet, you (xcorvis) ask(s): It's BSD Ports on Linux. It's awesome. Takes forever and a day, but it's so worth it.

Um, now with the not geeking. Started noding in Everything2 recently, as Discoflamingo13. More in another entry - it's been a trip so far, to say the least.

For all you video-game/girl-loving people out in userspace, this is pretty funny. All I can say is - 5th from the right.

Also, I learned today that the Imdb has a bottom 100 films based on user ratings. Check out Manos the Hands of Fate - and notice the surprisingly high number of MST3k movies.

The Real Pot Luck was super-great (and it would have to be, since I don't use words like "super-great" very often). More on that later. Back to watching stuff compile and finishing the re-write of the mid-term for Real, and the poetry critique.

So damn tired . . .
Current Mood: Super-great (?)

I liked the american beauty parody. Actually a lot of those were kind of clever. I like clever.

xVorvis? Ahem.

Yes, Gentoo uses a ports-like system. It is the most BSD-like of the mainstream unixes. Last time I tried their ports system tho, it's wasn't nearly as clean and polished. Don't get me wrong, it's great, it even has some features not built in to the FreeBSD version, but it still needs some work.

Dunno if you IRC, but if you do, pop in to irc.freebsdhackers.net/#freebsd some evening and I'll introduce you to some of the hard-core guys, like mod6.

Your supposed username has been corrected ;)
When was the last time you used it? It was pretty damn slick for me - of course, I haven't tried to unmerge anything yet, and gimp has a weird set-up issue (it can't get the screen resolution, so everything is blank), but other than that, it was slick as a wick.

Or something. I can't say how much the Gentoo portage system is like the BSD ports system, but from all the folklore I've gathered, it sounds about the same. Not very definitive, I know, but I take what I can get.

And no, I don't IRC yet, because I don't know how. Kinda sad, really - you'd think I'd've figured it out by now, but with AIM, LJ, K5, /., and E2, I have no strong desire to throw irc into the mix til after college.

And check your e-mail for my phone number. I should give you a call when I find out what yours is, and determine definitively that it is not the one your parents still reside at. Tell them I'm sorry about that if they get a chance ;)

The 'rents don't mind. You do realize my new number is listed on their answering machine, right? :)
