Winter Break Wrapup. [Jan. 14th, 2005|01:35 pm]
Chaz Meyers
Before each break I make huge, elaborate lists of awesome things I will get done. Then, I proceed to do none of those things. This break is no exception. Here's a list of things I did do:
  • Pass all the classes I expected to pass.
  • Took a brief look at Python and VB.NET
  • Read way too many news stories/links.
  • Read enough of the IMAP RFC to know that it wouldn't be fun to implement.
  • Reunited with old friends over dinner, beer, Jared's Wheel of Fortune debut, and Mowie Mowie [sp?].
  • Encountered teh Bit-man, a lousy Russian, and the rare, elusive Jittermary.
  • Worked many a ridiculous half hour shift.
  • Debugged a fair amount of perl code which I had no hand in writing.
  • Had a great New Years Eve, culminating in a beautiful view of the fireworks from the roof of the Regency.
  • Rearranged the furnature in my closet room.
  • Lost three credit cards. They were not all mine.
  • Found drivers for my soundcard. When did Creative start sucking so much?
  • Fiddled with two OldWorld Macs. Only one of them doesn't power up. ;-) Speaking of which, Tosh! Does that guy have an Apple monitor? I'd love to get Linux on this thing so I can get it off of my floor and into a closet.
  • Got wickedly sick and passed my disease on to a horde of others.
  • Went to Longwood Gardens twice, and was only kicking and screaming the second time. ;-)
  • Your mom

I suppose that isn't too bad for a month or so. I should also add that I slept. A lot. Good lordy, I slept.

Where would I need to travel to relish in this retro-computing bliss? :)

Find me on aim (thebwbohh).

I also have a few DB15->HD15 adapters for the monitor. I feel a bit sad letting the stuff go, but its doing nothing but taking up space at this point.

The 7100 can be upgraded to a 220mhz G3 for about $70 and I've had no luck getting Linux running on it (and yeah, I'm "The linux guy") ; although I honestly haven't tried too much, since the machine was never fast enough to warrant my time and the upgrades too much. I actually bought this machine a couple years ago from eBay from another collector, its in fairly good condition and I got a lot of extras with it:

* External SCSI-I harddrive caddy /w 700mb disk
* Monitor adapters
* v.90 external modem (brand-new, Macintosh serial)
* AUI ethernet dongle (ethernet onboard)

I also have some software for MacOS "classic" too, if you want it, including some older games... although now that I think about it, maybe I should fire up a game of Marathon? :)

Maybe I'll have more luck putting Linux on the bugger. :) I'm basically just looking for a machine I can ssh into and work in an environment that's Linux, not cygwin. :-P That, and host my own imapd and cvsd.
