"That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the absence of grace."
-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
Breaking stuff out of boredom.

The gutted PowerMac on the floor *was* running a Tiger beta, which had some interesting issues (DNS would stop resolving. AFP enjoyed eating a CPU and not responding to requests -- taking any other hosts which had it mounted with it), so I figured I would reinstall it tonight.

Realized that I would either have to find a DVD drive, or pull the root disk out and plug it into one of my other Macs and install it via firewire...

Figured it was all too much of a pain in the ass and OpenBSD is just so much easier to deal with.

I love OS X, but freakin' Finder should have been replaced in 10.4. Punkass bitches.

Threw a 3c905b into the machine, set it up as a firewall. Set it up as a fileserver. Took about an hour, 1.5h with compile-time.

Yeah... then the root disk ate itself. I sure do love computers.
