Body:

I took a couple minutes to look over Alan Robertson's paper, watched Jon twiddle with the Soekris box, and then spent a few minutes going through HTML files from the BLUG website for a bit of an update I'm working on.

Meeting: 20020404
Body:

Look through some books on kernel issues for a project in my operating systems class. Spent more time listening to the conversations going on around me than actually reading, though. Collective geeking can be like that, I think.

Meeting: 20020307
Body:

Discussed the future of LWN. Read a lot of email, sent some email, did a little work on a project in lisp, and otherwise managed to waste a lot of time doing nothing useful at all. I should've at least finished reading this week's LWN, after all...

Meeting: 20020221
Body:

Built 2.4.17 for the new laptop, got X, sound, USB visor, and a few other mildly broken things working before risking it all again on a long apt-get dist-upgrade to debian testing. More generally, spent much time being impressed with being able to carry 600 MHz with me.

Meeting: 20020131
Body: Primarily worked on a project involving kernel timers for the Operating Systems class, most of the effort was spent trying to figure out exactly what the professor wanted. Discovered that AM/FM radio is a completely futile effort so close to dozens of computers downstairs, and spent the evening in silence for lack of a properly working audio system on my laptop. (Next week, I'll bring a CD player.) A not insignificant effort was put into catching up on various email lists, and tweaking the spam filters.
