Solution for the portage issue (I think) (From Guillermo's suggestion...)


Guillermo's suggestion to use a sparse-file based portage has given me an idea. I can simply create a second VMWare disk that will, if present, be loaded into the system, otherwise /usr/portage will be empty. People who want to update or add software to the system can download the portage disks.

She said yes, by the way (Officially engaged now...)


We had our engagement party on Saturday evening, something remotely like a traditional Albanian one, just the two families getting together to get to know each other. Quiet little thing at which I asked Soni to marry me. She said yes :) .

There is now a great deal of chocolate in the house. Soni bought me ...

Very long day uploading (Upstream seems to suck pretty bad here...)


I've been uploading the image since noon today, another 8 hours or more before it's finished. I've also got a torrent seeded on LinuxTracker, but that was just as slow (though that's mostly because I only had one person attached, so bittorrent was basically just creating an http download stream).
