I'm a little concerned that Microsoft will probably be in posession of the personal information (names, addresses, credit card numbers) of hundreds of millions of people by this time next year. Apparently, when you first log onto the Internet on Windows XP, it asks you all sorts of things. It's supposed to make things easier for the consumer -- you can easily buy things without having to re-enter information, for example -- but how much do you trust Microsoft?
At work, we're inheriting a dual-processor workstation that we'll be using as a print server, log host, and monitoring system. Hopefully it'll work out.
My boss is acting pretty crazy, getting ready for our new server. I hope I'm actually doing the work he wants me to do.
I think I'm supposed to move to a new office tomorrow, but I'm not really sure. Fun.
Well, I finally got around to downgrading glibc on my system -- looks like it helped. I had been having trouble with a lot of `Illegal Instruction' errors while attempting to compile things. I had picked up glibc-2.2.2-10 from RedHat 7.1, thinking that it would work okay on RH 7.0, but it didn't. Picking up glibc-2.2-12 from RedHat's updates appears to have done the trick.
Er, almost. Still got an `Internal error: Segmentation Fault' on gcc when making sylpheed, but there are not nearly as many errors as what I was getting.. Maybe I picked up a mismatched gcc as well. Hmm.Posted by mike at May 29, 2001 08:56 AM | Old Advogato Diary | TrackBack
