Odds and Ends

When the music fades, and all is stripped away And I simply come
Longing just to bring something that's of worth
That will bless Your heart
I'll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself is not what You have required
You search much deeper within through the way things appear

    -Matt Redman, The Heart of Worship

I haven't posted anything for a while, so I thought it was definately time to say something. It's worth noting I finally got laptop's Linux install working nicely. I've had the unit for a year and a half, but I just had never taken the time to move all of my useful files and settings over to my Linux installation. Now I can carry my e-mail with me, and if I get my Winmodem working in Linux - I can check it while off of my normal LAN connection.

Ah fun! Mandrake Linux 8.2 is suppose to be out this week too, so I'll probably put that on both of my machines. The release candidate is very polished, and is one of the first Linux releases that I've run that you think “Hmm… this looks business-like.” Mandrake has really concentrated on making a distro that finally seems to be not only technically, but also aesthetically ready for business, I would say. I did a review of a beta version of MDK 8.2 last month, so if I've piqued your interested, check it out here.
