One of my linux boxen (my fastest with the best hardware) died a couple of days ago :( Motherboard issues. My two other Kubuntu boxen are stocked with hard drives and therefore, when I wanted to retrieve data from the hard drive of my busted PC, I didn't want to risk fucking around with the already overloaded PSUs of said boxen. However, my sole Windows box was pretty free, but obviously Windows does not understand Ext3.
If this isn't way cool, I don't know what is.
A friend put me onto itsyourturn.com a few days ago. The concept is not unlike other turn-based on-line games available around the Internet. However, while other sites (that I am aware of) concentrate pretty much on one game, here, there is a whole host of games available for you to waste your time on, and you aren't restricted to just one game at a time. So, you can be playing 5 scrabble (known as Jamble for trademark reasons I suppose) games, 5 backgammon, 5 ... etc. all simultaneously.
There is no minumum character requirement on sub-domain names. Yet, a number of whois and domain registration sites impose a minimum character check (usually 3) in their scripts. Decidedly batty :/
If you ever run into an error along the lines of
1155 instmsi30.exe not found specifying a directory, usually your CD-ROM drive, you need to update your Windows installer.
