XMMS and Cool WinAMP Plugins

While reading a few comments in this thread on slashdot, I saw mention of a guy who makes some cool WinAMP plugins. Then I looked at what one of them actually produces. Amazing. Yet another thing to try out if the notebook ever arrvies.

MySQL/FreeBSD Problems Get Worse

The odd problems we've been seeing with MySQL on FreeBSD have flared up recently. I just had to throw all traffic off our east coast servers and send it to the west coast (ouch!) to restart one of the east coast machines. The other east coast machine has been off-line since it got messed up on Friday.

It seems that FreeBSD's threading is to blame once again. Grr. I'm working to get a good build of MySQL with LinuxThreads support to see if this all goes away. In the meantime, things are quite fragile. I'm starting to really wish we had a Linux box on the east coast. Right now they're all on the west cost.

Damn you, Murphy. Can't you ever just leave me alone for a week?

Wireless at the Park

No, not me. But this guy named Joe found wireless at the park in New York. How cool. I have a feeling that I'd find something similar if I moved up to San Francisco, but that's not exactly a good reason to pack up and move, now is it?

Excellent Win XP FAQ

The folks over at DSLReports.com have assembled a very good FAQ on Windows XP. When (if?) my new notebook ever arrives, it will be very useful.

Thanks to Steve Friedl, I'm a big fan of the DSLR discussion forums too. There's a lot of very good info in them.

Open Source Conference Talks

I've been trying to ignore all the fun new stuff I want to explore so that I can finish working on the slides for two of my three talks at OSCON this year.
