A few pieces of unrelated stuff in this post. The kernel is in my [eee] repo. You probably know this already if you have updated recently.

I haven't put a whole lot of time into pacman lately. Work has been pretty busy, and I've spent a lot of my non-work time doing non-computer things and watching Netflix movies. If you want, you can look at my rather boring Netflix profile.

Slicehost has been working out well for this blog so far. It is nice to just be able to pacman -S foobar when I need something installed rather than doing some funky install from source stuff, and to have reasonably up-to-date versions of software (say goodbye to the python 2.3 install on DreamHost. Of course, my slice is also quite underutilized at the moment as I'm not being slashdotted or redditted on a regular basis. But I swear this blog can scale!
