Well I really don’t know what to do… I have all these machines sitting and not sure what to do. I have 3 machines, 1 is a 400 mhz AMD k6-2 w/384 Megs of ram, another is a 500 mhz AMD k6-2 w/512 Ram, and last I have a 1.1 ghz AMD k7 I think with a gig of ram, I also have multiple Hard drives from 6gig – 80gig, a few wireless NICs and some normal NICS, TV-out card, TV-in card. My original idea was to use the 1.1 as a HTPC, but I can’t get the damn capture card to record the audio, no idea. The 500 mhz I was thinking of just setting up Windows XP on it so I can have a Windows Box sitting around. The 400 mhz machine I was thinking prob. making it into a router/firewall. I am really leaning into not only making the 400 mhz machine just a firewall/router but also a Debian Linux file server running samba. If anyone is reading this you have any ideas? Also on another note I just got a Palm IIIc from my little sister today as she wasn’t using it anymore and had no need for it. I am in a jam finding good software for it as I really don’t now much about Palm systems.
I cant figure it out.. my linux install that is, Its the same hardware that I have been using since day one. I can install Debian with the defualt Kernel of 2.20… and yeah it all works fine and dandy, but the 2nd I go and install Kernel 2.4.18-k6 and reboot, all looks fine but the damn NIC stops functioning. Never had this issue before, after multiple installs it keps doing the same thing, maybe something is wrong with the NIC? or jsut maybe my parents should have gotten me one of these when I was a kid DNA Kit for Kids, it would have made me wiser I think. Prob. would have done more for me than a damn chemistry set… who the hell knows.
I got my Windows XP machine sharing the printer last night with my Powerbook. It was a little harder than I thought it was going to be… but it is done now. I think this weekend I’m going to try to get the Destruction Server running again.
The original plan was to use my 1.1ghz machine as the Destruction server, but I have since changed that into “Creation” my Windows XP machine… So Destruction gets to run on the old 400mhz again 😉
Well, this weekend was pretty cool, Amanda, Ryan, Nicole and I all went to Ohio for a wedding. Needless to say, there was an open bar and also at the bar, we went to on Friday they let me help make drinks.
The countdown is getting there for Vegas, not too much farther away. After the drive to and from Ohio, it kind of dawned on me that it’s going to be a LONG drive to Vegas… Ohh well it should pose for some good times, I hope.
Anyways in other computer dork news, I got my Debian box setup, which seems a lot better than RedHat was. Also, the site is going to get a new design to it I hope in the following week… but who knows this damn style sheet crap with Movabletype is getting really old real quick and is beginning to really piss me off. later
