Posting from KTU3...

KTU2 has moved to the basement, replacing Jennifer, the Ubuntu box I borrowed from Derek a year ago. Thanks to the Belkin game port, KTU2 is again on the LAN (the wireless PCI card never worked -- KTU2 has some issues).

TMU, in the meantime, now runs Ubuntu 6.10 in addition to Windows XP, replacing the Mandrake 10.1 distro. I had to tweak the installer script that came with the LinuxUser & Developer magazine DVD, per some on-line instructions.

I decided to bundle a DirecTV package through Qwest, dropping Comcast as my cable TV provider. We'll see how that goes. So far, I'm liking getting all these new channels (Comedy Central, SciFi Channel... Animal Planet). We also added caller ID to our house phone line.

DLW remains an important center on our home network, especially for bookkeeping.

Tara has a new snake, Naga, a girl corn.

Mom phoned today, is heading back to DC for more pow wows with big wigs. We're looking forward to Judy's visit.
