Got my little hard-drive rigged up to roll. I'm pleased with the results, even if a little incident between me and grub wasted an hour or so because I didn't read the man page sooner.
It seems grub has grown a boot-pile of more features since I last tried using it for any purpose.
The ability to ls a drive,partition is immensely awesome when trying to determine which one your other OS's are on according to it's equally awesome UUID support.
Suddenly adding/removing drives, or moving the drive to a different machine won't blow up what's where requiring a constant need to drop to it's command-line.
Anyway, that's enough rambling.

Completely random amusing link of the month:
Colors! I'm tempted to get this for my DS, as the thought of having something small and portable to scribble on strikes me as a strangely attractive prospect, and I just can't justify an iPhone for said convenience.
Having come to this realization, I see that the official site no-longer provides their app for the DS, though some kind chap over here provides a place to snag it from.

This article about Microsoft Exchange's little (little?) foibles is a really great read.
I can somewhat relate to a lot of these little issues as my workplace recently made the change to Exchange for corporate messaging and scheduling.
I say recently, but it's been about 8 months or so now I guess, and though it pains me to admit it - the shared calendar and scheduling Exchange can offer is pretty awesome.
E-Mail however... that's a different matter entirely. To say it was appalling would be an understatement me thinks.

No music today.
