2.5 already seems to be scheduling better for me, although I'm still mostly
running 2.4 on my new laptop until I figure out how to properly configure all
the new hardware. (APM suspends, and then never comes back until you yank
the #*%(&# battery. Great. Trying it with the real mode bios calls next

I got caught in a downpour with my laptop in my backpack, and didn't realise
the water resistant coating on my backpack had worn away until I turned the
thing on and the display shorted out. After two days of drying out, the
display was still screwed up, so I just bought a used thinkpad (iseries 1300,
quite a nice little machine) and swapped the hard drive and some ram from my
old toshiba. (Kudzu actually did something useful for once. :)

I think I've figured out why X is giving me an 800x600 window on a 1024x768
display screen (with a big black border). Why XFree86 freezes the box solid
for ten seconds at a time while KDE is probing the hardware devices, that I
don't know. (Google suggests the USB is funky. I'll see if 2.5 fixes it,
all I know of 2.5 on this box is that it booted to text mode and then shut
down again ok...)

I'm likely to be a bit distracted for a while yet, not counting catching up,
being out of town for a weekend, and of course the fall semester starting in
two weeks. Luckily, they make caffeine for just such occasions...
