-- William Gibson, All Tomorrow's Parties
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.Posted by: bda at May 21, 2005 10:56 AM
