    A gap year ?

    I blame my machines going up and down for the silence, and spending every last computing moment on backups, rebuilds, re-installs.

    Some of it is my own fault, pushing the hardware to the limits, experimenting with virtualization, tuning the CPUs (one of the crashes was my incorrect use of the taskset command, another trying to modify udev to read my camera in a particular way).

    But the worst disaster was when on a dual boot Windows 7 partition crashed, causing a wonderful blue screen of death. I kept the snapshot of this, for those that don't believe...

    Anyway, I'm back, trying to catch up. I'm nearly there, abandoned dual boot (will have all other OSes in VMware), and running with Ubuntu 9.10 again. Getting ready for the new LTS (Long Term Support), the 10.4 version out soon...
