Last Saturday I picked up my laptop from Seattle Laptop. Since I had copied my homedir over to my work workstation, I wasn't in a tearing hurry to rebuild my environment on my own hardware. So I waited until today to do it.

Redhat 8.0 installed quick enough, after I figured out how to make an IBM TP 600 boot off of CDROM. The slow bit was packing up the <1GB of stuff, scp'ing it over, and unpacking it again. I took the opportunity to clean out my mailfolders, and some (not all) of the junk that had accumulated in my /usr/local tree.

But anyway, it now mostly works (the wireless ethernet stuff is mostly all that s remaining), but it certainly is pretty. It's nice to have newer versions of mozilla and emacs as well.

While I was hacking away at my laptop, I also decided it was time to plot out my holiday travel plans. A week in Utah with my family, where I will attempt to avoid going crazy, and then a week in Boston with friends (zzbottom), while staying with JudyG.
