Got my results from the major field exam today, and guess what... I rocked it.
A 70% or better is required to pass it, and I turned out an 85%. Hell yeah.
Yesterday the dualhead video cards we ordered for our office machines arrived. They're nothing fancy, 64Meg Geforce MX4000, but still much better than the integraded intel chipset.
Gnome 2.10 with Twinview enabled is a beautiful thing.
Last night Jono and I went down to the Royal to play pool, and I pulled off my first perfect game. Jono broke, and then I somehow managed to sink every single striped ball on that table, and finished off with the 8 in the side pocket. It was awesome. I only wish there had been more witnesses because I don't think I could do it again. At least not anytime soon.
Upgraded to wordpress 1.5.1 today, good enough reason to start posting again. One thing I do love about wordpress is that I can upgrade it just by copying the new version on top of the old one, no hassle.
Speaking of new versions, FreeBSD 5.4 was 'officially' released yesterday, I was already running off the stable branch for a month, but I figured this would be worthwhile. Upgrade went smooth except for one minor hitch, I can't get a dhcp lease anymore. Looking over the release notes, they mention some major work done on the fxp driver, which is what my Intel NIC uses. Still trying to figure out whats causing the problem. The logs seem to indicate a problem with bpf, so I guess thats the place to start.
