Body: Ate cookies, and re-read all of the "At The Show" comics at Caught up on The Onion. Uploaded a small Debian package (libatomic-ops). Started debugging an LLVM bug where the compiler driver segfaults -- easy to reproduce: just run llvmc with almost anything. Read some more about the LLVM internals and all the LLVM commands. Also signed up for the Dr Science mailing list.

Body: Briefly looked at porting a 64bit app to x86... then decided I didn't care that much. Recovered from installing Ubuntu Xorg on a Debian unstable system. Kind of a pain. Found out S3 suspend on nc6000 does bad things (seems to suspend, power on turns on some leds, but nothing else. had to remove batteries to reset).

Body: Installed FC3 on a new system. Impressive, since the box was 60 miles away. Downloaded the FC3 ISOs (not in that order). Average download speed was around 33mbps, which is totally respectable. Tweeked around with some of the system setups at the new facility, installed software, etc. Chatted around some. Got TFTP and PXE and DHCP to allow me to do the remote installs. Worked good.

Body: Tried to help Jamie setup his networking dhcp scripts. Found out that my qemu install of debian had a pooched Lilo boot loader. Downloaded a floppy disk linux distribution called Tomsrtbt. Used it to boot up and mount the debian image, then chrooted and ran lilo, which then properly built the master boot record. Qemu is cool. Continued reading Chapter 10 of Learning Python.
