My past few days at work have been largely consumed by an intro to Gentoo Linux as a potential server replacement. Gentoo’s cool and all, but damn, it takes forever just to get a running server with all the emerge packages. Not to mention the brownout we had yesterday so helpfully shutting down the system. It sadly does make me pine a bit for the speed of RPMs, even if they are bloat and suck with dependancies.

Ant update: I seem to have killed off their major onslaught. I know they’re still around, since dead ones keep showing up where I sprayed, but hopefully they will come to understand that there is no room for them in the house of pain.
