My site feed is apparently gone. I don’t know where it went or why it left. This really bothers me though. My first though well it might have something to do with me switching to the Google beta version of Blogger, but now that I think about, it would of been working after I switched over, so there much be something wrong else where. I suppose I’m going to have to e-mail Blogger support and ask them what is going on. I would really like to get my feed back. It really bothers me that is gone. No wonder I’m not getting any traffic off of http://www.larrythecow.org anymore. No one there can see my posts! I’m sort of ticked off. Enjoy the Penguins!
If you look at the screenshot to the left you’ll notice I’m actually using swap on my x86 laptop! I don’t guess I should be excited by this but I am because is the first time it’s ever happened to me. How did I do it? I ran
emerge -1 gcc
Why that took so much memory this time that it had to eat swap too I don’t know, but it didn’t when I ran
emerge -e system
emerge -e world
I was so excited though that I had to post a screenshot. This is also ironic because it couldn’t of been more than a week ago I had a discussion with the creator of Zenwalk Linux on what the point of having swap even is. I told him “I don’t see why I need any, I never use it.” Now here I am eating my own words. Up until now that though that was a completely true statement. Oh well. Enjoy the Penguins!
As a personal update I spent most of the day looking at graduate schools for Computer Science. They all want you to think that they are big and bad, but I don’t believe a lot of them. My only real fear about getting in stems from not actually having an undergraduate degree in Computer Science. I feel like with my strong background in math though I’m a shoe in for the “catch-up candidate.” I just hope someone has room for that. If not I will be pursuing another B.S. from somewhere, more than likely one of the school I apply to for graduate school.
Of course Some nice developments in the Linux world. Gentoo 2006.1 has been out for quite a while now, but I’m just now talking about it. The only major change was update to GCC 4.1.1. Which doesn’t really mean much to me except its newer so I assume it must be better. I don’t remember if I have told my story about the update from 3.x.x to 4.1.1. I will look back and report later if I have not. AMD bought ATI. How fitting is that really? The only two three letter acronyms in the business are now one. I would expected them to buy nVidia first actually, their smaller, probably cheaper. I guess it does make sense to buy ATI since they are on a downhill slope. That would make them a good deal. Maybe they can get their act together since AMD bought them, who knows? Only time will tell us how it goes. I personally prefer AMD, but I also prefer nVidia for my graphics card, so I hope this doesn’t prohibit me using them together. That would not be sexy.
Enjoy the Penguins!
